I have had the same difficulty getting these plants in good shape, Paul. Tom sent me some Gratiola once that was nothing but brown water and goo when it arrived. :cry:

Along with removing as much extraneous moisture as possible, I think removing as much air from the bag they are sealed in also helps maintain submersed-grown plants during shipping. I've considered getting one of those vacuum packers they are selling for leftover food to see how that might improve things. Removing older leaves from the stem before shipping may also help.

I also wonder if capping the cut stem with wax or perhaps some other "cap" would be helpful.
