In the fall of 2009 I purchased seeds from a seller in Malaysia. The seeds arrived in a small non-padded envelope. Each set of seeds was is a 2x3 snap-lock plastic bag with an identification label at the bottom of the bag. The seeds were at the bottom of the bag which had been rolled-up to form a cylinder 2 long and under 0.25 in diameter. The snap-lock had been closed before rolling but there was some trapped air in the bag to cushion the seeds. The top of the bag was secured to the cylinder with a small piece of scotch tape.

A row of seed cylinders was held in place by a folded piece of standard size stationary paper which also provided a little extra crushing. The seeds arrived in excellent condition and I had no problems with germination. The seller provided some extra free seeds which I have yet to germinate. Attached is a picture of the remaining seed cylinders and folded paper container.
