Best way to ship aquatic moss?

I have a bunch of flame moss I need to sell. Just wondering what's the best way to ship it?

I have small flat rate priority mail boxes. Now do I just put the moss in a zip lock with water or do I use a damp paper towel to wrap it in, or both?

Thanks!

Most plants are fine so long as the seal is water tight in the container and insulated for temperature fluxuation. Box is far better than a padded envelope.

I wrap it in a moist towel and then into a ziplock. I haven't had any issues. Have anymore Flame moss you want to sell?

Yeah I've been hearing both methods.. I suppose either would work.

I do have some left. Here's the thread for it:

When I ordered flame moss online it came in a padded envelope and the moss was wrapped in a layer wet newspaper and was inside of a small zip lock bag. It was perfectly healthy but I do live in Florida so weather was not an issue.
