    Question

    Last month I shipped a small sundew to Purplesundew. She was delighted with the packaging as much as the plant and thought I should share it with the rest of you.

    The packageing consisted of two styrofoam lids from test tube containers (got them from work) and a small/medium sized clear plastic (purple of course [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]) Easter egg (I liked the symbolism of a new plant[leaf cutting] emerging from an egg (new life)). I placed crumpled paper towels in each lid for cushion. I got a small piece of saran wrap, large enough to just cover the small half of the egg and cut a hole in the center just large enough to place the seedlings roots through. I then placed moist LFS in the smaller half of the egg around the roots and taped the suran to the outside of the egg to hold it in place. I then closed the top half of the egg and taped it closed. I placed the egg between the two lids and shook it to make sure the egg didn't need more paper towels to hold it in place, then duck taped the lids together (I was all out of bailing wire [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img] ). It cost about 89 to mail if I remember correctly [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img].

    Here are pics she sent me of what it looked like when she got it.
