Sending clones - best way

Unrooted cuts, no added moisture, ziplock baggy with no air. DVD cases (remove disc insert) make great flat packaging.

I've sent a lot and this is by far the best. In the winter the cuts can sometimes go as long as a week in transport and still make it.

Any moisture or air only speeds up decomposition. It takes a while for a cut to dry out...

Extreme temperatures should be avoided. I find cool weather(above freezing) the best

Had cuts sent 2-day mail in Nov. They got posted with the evening mail and it was a holiday or bad weather weekend, so they took 4 days to get to me. One of those early arctic expresses was parked over the country and it actually froze the cuts.
Only 1 survived, but it never grew properly.

Hey there Katsu

Please elaborate on the no added moisture part of your instructions.

Great share

Lots of people will spray the cuts with water, wrap the stems in damp paper towels - IMO none of this helps. You want the cutting as dry as possible and with as little air as possible in the baggy so as to delay rot.

diametrically opposed to this...= 180 degrees wrong IMHO (unless freezing cond. exist, then ur just dumb), and always use 2 day USPS, faster....works flawlessly so far

I've only shipped ohh bout 200 - 300 clones...in the past
