>Here's the link to the USDA publication that spells out the import
regulations for bulbs.  No permit required for most soil-free "bulbs"
in whatever quantity.

I would interpret this passage "Nondormant underground portions of the plant 
showing signs of new growth are not regulated as bulbs, and must be sent to 
a Plant Inspection Station as nursery stock. Shipments of more than 12 
pieces require a written permit" as applying to plants showing growth, since 
the second sentence is included in the paragraph.

I'm not a bulb lawyer, though.
