caralluma fimbriata

Does anyone grow caralluma fimbriata? Are the plants available in the US and can they be legally imported?

Call the U.S. D. A. regarding U.S. important of plant, and get an import license do not smuggle in plants. Norma

Perhaps doing a search worded something like:

"Importing Caralluma fimbriata to the United States"

That's likely to yield info.

I don't recall seeing any discussions here that relate to Carallumas & I've been here since 2001. (I know that they're Asclepiads & therefore related to Stapeliad, Ceropegias, etc.) I've seen a few at a collector's home.

The only Caralluma I have is (I think) a C. melanacantha. It seems to grow very slowly and has not yet flowered.
