I know i have to clean the dirt from the fan and cut the blades down somewhat. Is there a medium i should pack them with or just bare root inside a plastic bag with holes? I would like to start selling off some of my extras and unknowns.
I know about the selling side as i am a long time ebay seller of die cast toy cars and have made and shipped over 200 trades on hotwheelscollectors.com trade boards when they were still up and running.
Live plant shipping is totally new to me.

Bare root them with damp newspaper.
Here's an example.

They came from a Florida greenhouse! Hilarious!
Got them this spring and they shrunk to about half that size.

I have never purchased any plants looking like that, but I was told before they would never look like that in my garden after the first year.

Plants do stay looking like that here. I grow them in boxes and water/fertilize heavily.
