    Dang man I'm so sorry... I feel so bad. I really tried to package it well, I have no clue what could have happened..... I guess I need to work on my packaging skills a lot. I really hope it pulls through for you, and if there's anything I can do, let me know... I'll try my best to find another one somewhere if it doesn't make it.

    good thing it wasnt a rare much sought after nep lol

    its ok dont be too hard on yourself! but having the plant in a sealed plastic bag with the roots wrapped in a wet paper towel usually does the trick very well. its the way i go when shipping any neps.

    Yeah... I should have looked into it... Or just used common sense. I just figured since I always ship sarrs wrapped in moist paper towels, it'd be fine for a nep too. Is it at all salvageable...? Do you have any photos of its current condition?

    Any update on this item? I left the thread open since Myles indicated there was an issue with it.

    Let us know if there's anything the NASC can do to help resolve the situation.
