    i think u should be fine, they mostly ask to make sure your package is safe. Since shipping live plants. I like to tell them its perishable then they tell me to write it down so the mailman knows. U should be good. its unethical if its something hazardous and you dont tell them. Regular water unethical? c'mon.

So can I really ship them... or aquatic utrics... or plants, in general?

    What exactly is considered 'liquid' and/or 'perishable'? Should I justship my D. binatas in moist paper towels, instead?
    I remember a lonnnng time ago you sent me a 50 ml centrifuge tube of D. binata or some variant of D. binata. Haven't you done this in the past before just fine?

    The overwhelming view consensus, which includes post office personnel commenting on blatantly honest replies, is that shipping live plants, including water, follows the 'spirit of the law'. That's all I needed to know. Thanks for responding.
