Need to mail some water plants. water liliy, rush, and several iris. Not worried about the iris but can I put the water lily in a platic bag? I have the roots wrapped in wet paper towel and the only leaf it has is a teeny tiny leaf. I thought I could put the whole root and teeny tiny leaf in a plastic bag and mail.
thanks for the help.

The rush I was just going to wet the paper towel with the roots in it, wrap in plastic wrap and send just like the iris. Any help appreciated.

Hi Joyce,

Yes, I would do just as you have described. I have mailed out waterlilies before in this manner without any problems.
