Despite moist paper and plastic bag the Hoya curtisii dried

The 5 rooted plants were wrapped in moist paper and plastic bag, but despite this method the curtsii dried in transit  ( Hoya plants in a Small parcel Air to France ).

We use a plastic bag to avoid dehydration ( and to prevent contact between the non root parts of the plant and the sticking moist papers wrapping the other plants around ) but the risk of rot , risk which is higher with rooted plants than cuttings, cannot be avoided either.

Our packing method is by default : in the absence of alternate instructions with the order we will pack rooted plants in humid papers and plastic bags.
