I have a love-hate relationship with the post like most of you. I got some plants from nep0260 that the outside-facing plants were of terrible quality, and they were beautiful plants before they were in the murderous clutches of the USPS. It is pretty imperative that you (1) give a fair layer between the box and the plants of an insulating material, (2) allow no movement, pack your boxes as tight as you can, and (3) tape and seal boxes on all seams to insulate further. Now, because you hear the USPS is "Slow" at a certain time, don't try and ship FedEx, as those services are often worse (We lost several jellyfish to FedEx being late). Just ask the seller to delay shipping if he/she can. Plus, the US mail has a 50 dollar maximum free insurance you can just ask for at the counter, which is a good cover if you are shipping things of value, it will partially reimburse you.
