Hey Matt/Leah, I've got a question for ya! I'm going to ship some CPs to a friend, but I want to make sure they survive shipping. I know with VFTs you can just wrap the plant and rhizome in a damp paper towel, and put it inside a sandwich bag. However, I don't know how to ship Sarracenias or Drosera. :? Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance! :D

Yes, we ship all plants the same way by wrapping the rhizome/roots in a damp paper towel and then placing them in a plastic baggie.

The other issue (which is probably obvious) is to monitor the weather. Shipping mid-summer or mid-winter can be a real problem. Shippers don't always ship in a straight line either .... (big part of the country is below 20*F now).
