    You could clip off all the pitchers or bend them back. It won't arrive looking pretty but it will definitely bounce back.

    Easy way to ship Sarrs:

    1) Uproot and wash away all media from the plant.

    2) Roll out 60cm of SaranWrap

    3) Wrap Sarr rhizome/roots in damp (not wet, should not be dripping) sphag.

    4) Place Sarr with sphag ball about 1/3 of the way up the short dimension of the SaranWrap and 1/4 of the distance from the side.

    5) Fold the 1/4 length over the Sarr

    6) Fold the 1/3 height over the bottom of the Sarr

    7) Roll the whole thing up.

    8) Stick in box

    9) Ship box via Priority mail

    This method will keep the Sarr happy for at least 1 week in transit. And the big benefit is that you do not have to thrash the pitchers.

    You guys might want to consider cleaning this thread up and making a sticky post outta it.
    Attached photos would be complimentary to this info as well.
    Who knows, it might help enhance the quality of a plant any of you may receive someday.
