    Interesting...

    Somebody sent me 5 Drosera hibernacula in January - in a regular letter envelope. They are all green and healthy, they aren't squished at all - they're unfurling their first leaves now. I guess Canada's mail sorters haven't yet been 'upgraded' to steam rollers :P

    I had someone send me a Venus flytrap once many years ago for a trade... in a normal letter envelope, in a zip lock baggie. hahaha It did not make it

    Just put a small piece of foam or styrofoam in the (padded) envelope. It will prevent crushing.

    OR! this is a new method of destruction by the USPS to make us mail more to make up for their poor fund allocations haha! I was missing 6 (yes six!) invoices last month... Yes, my mailbox is secured... So where does the problem lie? Surely with the 6 different companies that sent me an invoice that month
    Yeah, from my most recent seed SASE, for the first time I heard complaints of crushed seeds, too, while earlier the same year I didn't pad them at all. Very interesting... it only makes it harder to be generous now! >.<

    Of course! I'll send it back in whatever you provide, just make sure you have appropriate shipping on everything.

    Same as above, whatever is provided for me is what/how I'll ship them

    Hey Andy do you still have some seeds I could send off for? If so I'll send out a SASE tomorrow and if not, I'll just have to lurk moar.

    And and these will have to be stratified correct?

    STILL no need to ask. If the topic is open and you have not gotten some already, put your name and send!

    Yes, they need to be stratified.

    here's a new one for me, my seeds ripped out of the envelope and got my envelope in a usps window envelope without the stamp stamped by the post office...what load of crap.

    i personally think its usps workers thinking its pot seeds and jacked it, who knows.

    edit: anyway, thanks Andy for trying
