Only time I've lost a plant I've shipped is when they've left it in the mailbox for a couple days (both hot and cold) I know this since they tell me days after it was delivered "I just got it and..." lol?.
    I generally don't have issues. But in the past I've had issues with the more heat-sensitive species shipping during the dog days of summer. Especially if shipping gets on the longer side for any number of unknown reasons. Dunno if humidity plays an additional factor here.

    Understanding that it's the NASC so most people are buying/selling summer-growing plants anyways, if a happy medium can be reached to avoid when it's still early for some people and when it's even hotter for others, I'd advocate for that!

    Agreed. Even a couple of weeks later would be beneficial, in my opinion.
