Received in another group I am in and thought I'd share Fresh cuttings, wrap cut end in wet paper towel. put in plastic bag. Same for rooted plants -- I root in water a lot. Seeds, make an envelope of paper or buy small zip type bags. To mail use boxes or Bubble Envelopes. Mark the outside of the box/envelope "perishable, plant material, handle with care." Perfectly legal in the US

Hi there! I do something similar. I wet cotton pads (small ones!) around the root(s) and then wrap that with foil and then put them in a small plastic container to protect them. I don't usually mail my cuttings this is for people who are travelling from my house to theirs (or vice versa)! They generally arrive in a good state. I love my plants
