Usually we pack the plants with the sphagnum moss and wrap it with plastic then put in into box. For some country that sphagnum moss prohibited we use tissue to pack the roots.
All plants will be shipped with phytosanitary certificate. It's free from us. If your country required import permit to get plants overseas, you need to send Import Permit us before we ship the plants. Except Singapore, you need to pay import permit via Singapore Customs's TradeNet System when the plants arrived in customs
