    What I usually do is leave as much soil on the roots as possible. Then I take a small handful of LF sphag, get it wet and give it a little squeeze so that it is only damp (like a sponge.) Wrap the roots in the damp sphag and then put the whole bundle in a zip lock. For good measure I usually double bag just in case but that is probably just me and my overkill obsession. Pack it into a box with padding and then head for the post office as soon as you can [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    the way that dean at cooks carnivorous plants ships drosera to me is that he wraps the roots with some soil on them in a moist paper towel and places them in a zip lock bag. I dont know wether or not this will work with those particular kind,but i hope so.
