Jason Baliban Yeah,
stargrass is one......that stuff is doomed 5 minutes after clipping!!! HAHA. Didiplis is another......i imagine that is very delicate. Tears is the other.....that might be ok just cause it grows like a virus. But all in all i dont think it is worth the effort. Especially with the temps we are running these days. Thanks for the comments Buck.

Buck I have saved a few battle ridden plants over the years, the best way is to just look at them. Heavy wilting is the first sign, some plants do OK that long though as long as they were kept moist like Anubia's...pretty tough plant but some fine needled plants like cabomba... forget it... they are doomed.
All depends on the plants Jason.

Jason Baliban Yeah,
thats what i thought buck. I will chuck them......its too bad was a ton of plants.

Buck Nope... bad move at any time of the year, thats way too long in a box. Not many plants will put up with that. Fresh out of the tank and into a box they would be OK for 4 days with good temps but now they will be another 2-3 days shipping ?

Sorry Jason...bad call.

Who's the unlucky recipient ? LOL

Jason Baliban Plants have been sitting in a box on my desk. my office is about 68 degrees. What do you think?

m.lemay Thats debatable. It all depends on the plant and where they were kept. Cooler is better. If they were in the heat or sun, theres a good chance they're already gone.

HELP - Are plants still in good condition?

I trimmed the plants thurs and they sat in a bucket for a day. I then packed them in bags and put them in a box. I didnt get them shipped on friday or sat. The plants sat in a box for 3 days and then I will ship them on monday. Do you think the plants will be in good condition?
