    hmmmm.... i wonder if there would be fewer occurances of damaged plants if senders started including a note with the species and breif description of the plants. sort of like a packing list identifying the contents.

    I'm telling you, man, that thing burrowed out and escaped on its own. You people have to watch that SuperThrive. Here's an artist's rendition of the results of SuperThrive abuse.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Oh my God! I thought you guys were talking priority mail cardboard envelopes! Not a LETTER envelope!

    I've had a package of YEAST get caught in the machinery that sorts the letter envelopes. Plants should NEVER be sent in a normal letter envelope!

    That's almost as bad as the time someone threw a nepenthes in a box with peanuts. No bags or towels, just a dried, dead nepenthes with peanuts lmao. He made good on it though.

    Check the USPS site

    How about checking out the USPS site for the kind of shipping products that you might need in order to avoid damaged goods?
    Here is the link:

    meh w/e
    Back off topic! haha

    Just wanna let the fuzz here know I'm not completely anti-police. An ol' good friend of mine is in the NYPD an another friend works for Nassau County.
    Without Police, there'd be Anarchy.
    And it's not like I'm jaded for no reason either. Sometimes they do whatever they want and there's not a damn thing you can do about it.

    I guess I was raised to be anti-police since my dad's grandfather was a bootlegger between GA and Tennessee. For all intensive purposes, I consider him a drug dealer

    Cops, can't live with them, can't live without them.
