I have shipped ludwigia sp 'cuba' (submersed) a couple times. I used expresspost; send the plants on monday and it will arrive wed (3 days). The plants arrives in good shape.

I wrap the plant in wet papertowel, put it in a ziplock bag and let most of the air out of the bag before sealing it.

When a thick stem plant melt, it is near impossible to recover.

I also find a thick stem plant that have been growing prolifically under really strong direct light does not do well from being shock during shipping. The faster it grow, the easier it is to melt. If it is growing slower under lower light, it seems to be a little more durable during shipping.

Someone will have to test it to verify it though.
