Plantslive is sending plants using 15 cm x 15 cm square boxes or rolls of height starting from 30 cm to 120 cm. Our packing team is very carefully bagging the plants and taking care of the plants like babies.

Plantslive is using the wet substrate for preserving water in the container. We carefully remove the poly-bag and transfer the plant to a small container black pots without removing the original soil. We add the wet substrate to ensure the water content for 3-7 days in the container. Certain plants shipping with original poly bags as well.

Plantslive uses thread in the bottom of the bag to fix the plant in the vertical long box. This needs careful un-boxing. We have another article for unboxing the package and getting the plant out of it.
