Move to NM

nancymd_2009August 19, 2009

We are planning a move from PA to ABQ, NM and was planning to bring some of our plants (Pencil Cactus & Mexican Ponytail). Someone mentioned there is a ban on bringing plants into the state. Is this true?

No ban on houseplants. These won't make it outside BTW if you were hoping. Good luck. Learn to like the native stuff. There are tons of native plants from forest to desert that do well. We have alkaline soil so many 'Eastern' plants get yellow here. The native stuff sails through. I have aspens and palms in my yard. Both can do well here.
