After reading about sending cuttings through the mail using florist’s flower vials on the Hoya Cubit Forum, I thought I would give it a try. I sent a number of cuttings to a great Hoya friend in the UK, and after 2 weeks in transit, the cuttings look almost as good as the day that I cut them! This method of shipping cuttings need to become the de facto method. It is worth the minimal costs of these little contraptions to ensure the safe arrival of these plant cuttings. Attached is a photograph of the cuttings in vials after two weeks taken by Julie Kennedy in the UK. The vials work well on cuttings of all size. Even the (notoriously hard to ship) thin leaved campanulata traveled well!
