Does anyone have advice for shipping terrestrial utrics, specifically sandersonii? I got mine at a cp meeting, so it wasn't shipped to me.
I attempted to get some from somebody, they were shipped with a bit of moist soil and wrapped in a paper towel, finally wrapped loosely with newspaper. Arrived 5 days later at my house quite dead and similar to boiled lettuce.
I tried to send some to a friend, potted, moist, and anchored to the box. It arrived 5 days later with the soil in pieces (as if kicked down the street or shaken violently) and also quite dead in wilty brown format.
Are these simply not hardy enough to withstand shipping, or are there tricks to sending such things? I've sent vft, u.gibba, and neps with no problem.
