I may be pulling up a clump of Blyxa aubertii and wonder if anyone knows whether this stuff will ship well or not? The leaves are very soft and easy to tear, so I am curious if anyone has experience in how well it ships. Thanks in advance.

I've shipped plenty of Blyxa around and didn't have any problems. This was Blyxa sp. 'Vietnam' (may be Blyxa japonica var. alternifolia) and a few aubertii. They're sensitive, but it isn't usually a problem. The only one that died had been left over weekend in sub-zero temperatures. It isn't all that cold yet, so go for it. As with any trade, having the recipient ready to recieve makes all the difference.

Lots of CO2, NO3, PO4, traces and it'll grow into weedy clumps that need prunes 2x a week dude.

I gave 50+ plants away at the last plant fest of B japonica.
I could not stop it from growing.

Shipping is easy.

Bert knows I grow it like mad.
