I'm shipping live plants for the first time. I plan to use a bubble mailer with the plants wrapped in wet paper towel. But I need insulation. What do I use for that?

If styrofoam sheets won't fit best other option is newspaper. Almost acts like insulation layer. Maybe inch on each side I would pack as full as can be if it's the if 8t fits it ships. Lol

Ps I would not use bubble mailer. Plants will get smashed. I would use small box.

I wouldn't sleep if I sent in mailer. Lol

I've sent plants through the regular mail in bubble envelopes with a pretty great success rate. I just put the plants in a layer of paper towels and a freezer size ziplock and push most of the air out and add postage. 99% of mine were delivered without any issues. Just my experience so far.

Wow! Okay. Thanks. So you didn't even have to pay shipping? What size mailers?
