    Does anyone have any experience mailing cuttings? Is it safe to mail unestablished cuttings?

    i think you can mail the cuttings in a plastic bag, then before you zip it shut have a little hole in the top and blow some air into it so it dosnt get that dry or stale or whatever, and then close it, should be find, then when you put in a box use that hard paper like pft usues or that foam small peices that are shaped in a S or somehitng

    i neevr did it but just sayign stuff of the top of my head [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Or maybe you should wrap it in sphagnum.

    Hey Pat I'd pay for my shipping! To ship a cutting you simply have to root it first IMO to increase success rate during shipping. If you don't root it it may/could rot during transit. To pack it up I have had cutting come in various mixes, Sphagnum,peat/perlite,etc. I personally would place it in Spahgnum and wrap plastic wrap around the spagnum then rubber band the palstic to the stem so it won't fall off, make sure the spahgnum is very moist and send away.

    Unfortunately, I don't have time to get the cuttings to root (I originally typed "rot", whoops), I'm moving next Friday. I am considering mailing them out though. I would probably have to ask to have the money mailed to Phil & Jeff because of the simple fact that I'm not going to be here much longer. I also haven't had any luck obtaining sphagnum here, so that's not an option.

    You all realize that Pat is in Japan?? I suppose an unmarked package might make it past customs and USDA, but they will be none too happy if they catch it arriving without proper import permits and documents.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I have had reasonable success with mailing plants through the Japanese postal system. Its a pain, but at least its legal.

    But it does take quite a bit longer..

    Well I have thought about it... I don't think its a good idea. If I could do it for free I would.. But I"m not going to ask for S&H money without being able to guarentee a live plant.. So I guess that leaves (no pun intended) the plant with me.. Hopefully I can try to cut one of them up (yup two large ones [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] ) after I move and get settled in. I have never (successfully) done Nepenethes cuttings, so we'll see.
