Not sure if this is in the right section.
I am trying to sell plants for a project, and am wondering how to ship plants? Like the general shipping process, and how you specifically ship the plants

Depends on the plant, most can be shipped without water in poly bags.

I’ve shipped 40-50 plants, none arrive dead. I just wrap the base of the plant in a paper towel then lift it out of a tank and stick it in a Ziploc bag. Then I stick the bag inside a box that’s lined with Styrofoam

I shipped some anubias and java fern to someone on here, and I did similar to MD_Plants by wrapping the rhizome in paper towel, putting a small amount of water in the bag, and boxing them with bubble wrap inside.
