    Ping strikes - How large do the need to be before you can safely mail out?

    I have a few ping leaves that have made new plantlets. What size to they need to be before you can mail one or two out and expect them to weather the trip? Thanks.

    A person I've ordered always shipped pinguiculas to me(depending on species) from the size of a dime(smaller species like debbertiana and such) to a quarter(larger species like moranensis and gigantea) and they've arrived in times of cold and heat just fine, a bit damaged, but TLC will make any plant happy. Just add a bit of insulation if the weather is a bit more on the bad side.

    Sounds good, these are about half a mm to maybe three so it might be awhile.
