    I'm heading to Minneapolis April 15th and I'm expecting to receive several (plenty) aquatic plants orders. Some of them are "delicate" species and for these in particular I'm looking to have feedback from you.

    My "keeping hardy plants in transit" regime consists of bagging them in 1gal Ziplock with a damp paper towel piece inside. Every two-three days I take them out, trim any dead or damaged tissue and re-bag with a new damp paper towel piece. I just keep them at room temperature, all zip-lock sealed with some air trapped in. I have also used small food plastic containers (with cover) if needed be. I've done this without problems for up to a week "in transit" time.

    My "keeping delicate plants in transit" regime? No idea how to do that. Never done it before. This time my estimated "in transit" time is 9 days.

    Help needed.

    Thank you
