    I used to deliver mail as a back up and I tried to follow the requests on the boxes but the boxes are thrown into large bins for shipping and sorting so up is how they land, i received my package that was mailed monday on sat on its side it was very well packed and only a little soil was covering the pitchers and they where a little loose so I cleaned the plant off and packed the soil (loosely) back in the pot Plant looks like it is ok
    glad there was good weather

    I live in an area that some couriers class as rural or remote, even though it is not many miles away from the oil capital of Europe! This effectively means that next day means the day after next. 'This way up' means very little to many couriers and you really should not rely on this as protection for anything you are sending. If you are sending plants then ensuring that they are secure, so that they don't rattle around in the packaging, and making sure that they have sufficient moisture - many growers in Europe wrap wet kitchen towel around the roots and tape these into a bag to avoid evaporation. I received a Heliamphora a couple of weeks ago which had not been secured sufficiently inside the box and every pitcher had been broken.

    Well.... I think USPS is better than Canada Post. Ridiculously expensive and freaking stupid mail men who don't bother inspite of the message: LIVE PLANTS Fragile. The package was stuck in the mail truck for 7 extra days. This is how my lepanthes looked when I got it.
