Would love a few bunches of your Downoi...unfortunately, it's quite a ways to ship to Oz Downoi fetches $20 for a small shrub, here. Three bucks, even with the exchange rate, is an absolute bargain! O'well.
Certain plants, yes. It's just like everything else, really...import taxes on anything and everything from Aquaria to iPods to vehicles means that we pay three or four times what y'all do, despite the favourable exchange rates... Madness. Still, I understand Downoi (for eg.) is quite easy to propogate, so I can't understand why people need to charge what they do, here, import duty or no...Id love to be able to sell/trade plants with you. From what I hear its pretty tough to get plants in and out of Oz
