How do you ship plants with heat pack?
Like the title mentions, i was wondering how would u ship a plant package in a small priority box with a heat pack?

Where do i get these heat packs? (only place i can think of is home depot)

How long will the heat packs last?

Do i just place the heat pack in the box and wrap the plant with news paper?

You can get heat packs from, wrap heat pack in newspaper or place a piece of cardboard between the plants and the heatpack, otherwise the heat will melt the plants you're trying to ship. Keep in mind...the longer the heat pack lasts, the bigger they are. So 48hr ones are smaller than 72 hr ones. I've found 72 hour heatpacks are overkill for priority sizes boxes and leaves you limited amounts of space.
