Are We Allowed To Bring Plants Into Singapore When We Travel ?

I am always tempted to buy some potted plants when i travel, but not too sure if custom will stop me ?
Anyone brought in plants before ? Thanks !
I think it depends on both the customs officer, and also the situation.
The last time I returned, I brought in three pots of lavenders (still with soil in the pots), and with a very large bunch of mulberry cuttings, all stuffed into one paper bag. I'd misunderstood someone saying that we're allowed to bring in three potted plants, so I didn't take out the media. I placed the bag through the scanner and no one stopped me. The officer even looked amused that I was bringing "veggies" in or stuff.
So...I'm not quite sure. But otherwise, it's best to follow the AVA instructions and bring in three plants WITHOUT the medium.
