How To Pack Anthurium Plants For Shipping

In this video, Samantha demonstrates how we pack our anthurium plants for shipping. This method tends to work well for shipping plants, though we do run into the occasional broken flower. Flowers are much harder to ship when they are still attached to plants as opposed to when they are packed as cut flowers.

Video Summary

  1. Wrap the roots of the anthurium with damp paper towels, so that they don’t dry out.
  2. Wrap clear plastic wrap around the paper towels, so that they retain the moisture and prevent the water from leaking into the box.
  3. Carefully wrap the anthurium plant and its leaves with newspaper to protect  them.
  4. Use tape to secure the newspaper.
  5. Don’t forget to label the plant with a permanent marker.
  6. Use packing peanuts or shredded newspaper as padding when placing the anthuriums into their box for shipping.
