>As several have mentioned, for small numbers of plant materials, I think it is 12 items or less as has been mentioned, I think an import permit is not required. However, the phyto *is* required. 

Technically, it’s “Lots of 13 or more articles (other than seeds, bulbs, or sterile cultures of orchid plants) from any country or locality except Canada.” 

Bulbs listed in CITES Appendix II do not require an import permit. https://fws.gov/international/pdf/…
You have to pay for the CITES export permit, but not an import permit. 

About 95 percent of my plant purchases are bulbs from overseas suppliers.
