More water? Are you trying to boil them? HA!
Personally, I don't even chance shipping plants right now. The only way you are going to get them to people is by using cold packs. Otherwise, with the heat of summer and lack of AC during shipping combined with an enclosed USPS trailer, it's like throwing plants into plastic-wrap covered container into a 130F oven. There is no guarantee during extreme heat or cold. Maybe you'll get lucky... talk to some of the other people that ship plants during this time of the year, and see what they do.
Without cool packs, the plants are likely to either dry out or turn into mush!
