I'm importing some at the moment, paid for the CITES certificate to get hold of some mexican grown, hard to get species. Hoping that it all goes well.

How do you go about getting the certificate?

The seller organises it and includes the documentation when they send it. Only hoping that it all goes well.

May I ask what seeds you are trying to get?
I have been on the phone a fair bit with the department of the environment, water, heritage and the arts recently. Smile I was trying yo get some Hoodia species seeds.
I found Australia is even more strict than just the CITES laws - for good reason - it just makes getting seeds very diffecult.

cheers

Ariocarpus seed - what else.
They are allowed into the country.

My seed collected has been collected from those very rare and hard to get plants that are growing in mexico and have been hand collected to try and populate them worldwide and place them in the hands of small collectors.

Is this thread about propagating Ariocarpus sp. seeds, or about CITES?

if germinated in spring when would hardening off take place?
once they are hardened when would you recommend potting in a more permanent pot and soil mix?

The following spring or the one after is preferrable. A strange paradox with Arios is they much prefer alot of humidity until they are large enough to be hardened off. Once hardened off high humidity should be avoided.

Yes, but I wouldn't suggest regular cactus potting mix, more than likely you will need to create your own mix to grow your Arios in. Needs to be very free draining and porous with high mineral content and little organic matter, climate dependant of course, though for southerners I recommed a very free draining mix with little to no organic matter.
