Hi, I need to know how to pack and ship a carnivorous plant without soil (bare root)?

Uproot the plant and rinse with water carefully removing media. Use a damp paper towel and wrap the roots and then wrap the plant in plastic wrap to retain moisture while shipment. ALWAYS ship 2 day priority

I would suggest using plastic Ziploc bags over plastic wrap, they allow the plant some air and don't compress it. They also fit in most boxes more snugly and reduce the risk that the plant will be bouncing around. For some plants (very small seedlings, pygmy Drosera, etc.) shipping bare-root is not suitable and they should be shipped potted.
