Good afternoon, I have a plethora of ping plants and have tried to sell them and ship them online but the one that I shipped didn’t do well and I have been afraid to try again. What is your best shipping methods for these delicate plants? Thanks!

I don't ship pings I only buy and the best method I've seen is get a plastic sauce cup with a lid like a 2oz or whatever size will fit your ping and some slightly damp long fibered sphagnum moss gently nestle your ping into the moss lightly cover it put on the lid tape the lid on and put it in a shipping box with your choice of padding/filling.

I'm sure someone who does sell lots of pings will come by with more details.

Thank you! I have received some pings that way too. Most of the ones I have are too big for that to work though. Image
