Hi, I will be travelling from Kolkata to Meghalaya in February'18 for 6N/7D trip and will return from Shillong airport by Air India flight. Now coming to the point, in the middle of the tour I shall collect/buy some flowering/ornamental plants for gardening purpose at my home.

1. Can I bring those plants inside check in baggage well packed & sealed in Air India flight, I checked their website for restricted materials, there is no mention of live plants.
2. If not, then how can I bring those plants to home at Kolkata? Is there any alternative way on flight?
3. Can I courier from Shillong to Kolkata? If yes what is the procedure, please guide.

There must be some way to manage it, please help anyone?
