Question

Best way to pack & ship plants?


Hey everyone,

I wanted to know what is the best way to package plant trimmings and ship them? I always have lots of trimmings that I usually just throw away so I figured I could sell them cheap here like others so they don't go to waste.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks
Mike

I double ziplock mine with a couple of damp paper towels in with the plants.

IME, anyone dealing with shipping plants really shouldnt go cheap on using boxes, bagging plants separately and using extra ziplocks. More so if they are selling rare and expensive varieties of plants. Use this as a measure for how likely you'd deal with a particular seller in the future. Having an exotic plant list for sale makes no difference if they all arrive damaged or need 3-6 months recovery
