Get some plastic fish bags and rubber bands from lfs. Put them in the bag with a little water and lots of air. Twist top and band it. Get a usps medium flat rate box and put the bag in stuffed with newspaper all around it. Theyll ship fine as long as its in country and warmer than 45-50f during the days

ive done it before. if you double bag and have them oriented reversed of each other, its pretty safe.

Make sure to always have a ratio of something like 20% water, 80% air.

The gasses (oxygen) are absorbed by the water

+1 to that. For shipping anything other than plants id use a reg plastic bag with rubberband. 10x safer
