    I love your white shelving unit behind you at the end of the video. Could you share a link?

    Harli where do you get your sweaters?!?? I always love them 😍 😍

  4. LifeLostSoul on December 4, 2020 at 9:15 pm

    Another tip is make sure the place you are shipping to doesn’t have any laws/regulations about how plants need to be packaged and declared on packages.
    Like for example shipping to Hawaii plants can not be shipped in soil and they need to be labeled as plants or agricultural goods. Plus a few other rules.
    Also probably a really good idea to check if you want to try to ship internationally.

  5. Alexis Bayne on December 4, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    You’re glowing in this video!! So pretty

  6. Lil' DIY Tuber on December 4, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    This was so helpful thank you so much!

  7. F. GARCIA on December 4, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    I have a question, for shipping how long can a plant be in a box for transportation. Would it be better if box has holes for air.

  9. Carissa V on December 4, 2020 at 9:19 pm

    If I’m shipping an unrooted pothos cutting should I do the paper towel thing or ship it dry?

  10. Allie Bailey on December 4, 2020 at 9:20 pm

    Where do you get your calathea plants? i have NEVER been able to find one and i love all of yours!! i don’t really have any greenhouses near me that aren’t big box brands

  11. _sofiekay_ on December 4, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    Would you be able to post a link to your parents’ plant shop?? If you’d rather not I completely understand, but I’d love to see what they have in store and show them some support 🙂 love your channel btw

  12. Ner B on December 4, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    For orange sticks, chopsticks also work well. I tend to have a lot of these from takeouts. They’re also sold in bulk packs super cheap in Asian stores.

  13. Misty Nutter on December 4, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    Ahh getting ready to pack some cuttings for the first time!!! I’m so nervous they are going to dye 😬

  14. LeeAnn Wilmot on December 4, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    Oh gosh! I am sooooooooooo happy to see you use brown paper and twine! I try so hard not to buy plastic or items (think zippie bags) that are single use and become trash in our oceans. Thank you for showing that it can be done without this wastefulness and poison to our environment!

  15. Savannah Chavez on December 4, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    I took a lot of your tip and added some of my own I hope it all works out because I sent out my first plants in the mail on Friday! I’ll know Tuesday how it goes 🤞🏻

  16. Caleb Cooper on December 4, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    New to this world and so far your videos are very informative. Thank you Harli G. ✌

  17. TheFloridagirl2597 on December 4, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    since you already ship priority(1-2 days) if you use a priority box there’s no weight limit and it will most likely be a lot cheaper depending on the size of the box

  18. KarriAnn D on December 4, 2020 at 9:36 pm

    I NEEEEEED A ZZ RAVEN!! ZZ’s are my fave!!!

  19. Amelia Doubleyou on December 4, 2020 at 9:36 pm

    Question! Would these tips also work for packaging plants for a move? I’m amassing quite a collection of houseplants, but as a college student, I know I’ll be moving eventually and want to take my plants with me!

  20. Cheryl Faulkner on December 4, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    I’d like a plant, I’m just saying plant friend!!😍

  21. free fire Napuri on December 4, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    Hello, I’m in Sri Lanka. I’d like to give you the plants you need.🙏🙏

  22. Sherre Copeland on December 4, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    Thanks for doing this. Maybe I can get my mom to ship me some plants. I’d love to find a silvery ann plant. Where do you recommend to order plants from online? I just found your channel, so sorry if you already have a video on it.

  23. J Mai on December 4, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    I wish I would have watched this video last week!!!! I shipped my very first SIX potted plants. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
    PLEASE PRAY FOR ME THAT NOBODY ASKS FOR A REFUND. I DID MY VERY BEST!! THAT CHOPSTICK IDEA WAS BRILLIANT. I WISH I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT OF THAT WHEN PACKING MY PLANTS. So sad right now…. One question, do you ever send the clay pots with the plant?? Cuz everybody always wants the clay pot and I feel like that’s going to ruin the plant in the mail!??????????? Please show me how!! 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🦋🌿

  24. Jordyn Williams on December 4, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    thank you for all of these tips! i have an etsy shop and the best investment i made was buying a food scale (just a small one from target) so that i could weigh my own packages without the hassle of going to the post office.

  25. Barbara Black on December 4, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    I offered to send someone some plant mail before I researched how! It’s just xmas cactus. Can I line a snail mail envelope and wrap the cutting in cardboard or paper and slap on a stamp? I think if I wrapped it greatly and stuffed the ‘lope it would work. Have you sent snail mail plant mail? I don’t think the p.o. is open? I don’t know!!!! Lol!!!!

  26. YouGrowGail on December 4, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Loving the last two videos. Back to the same kind of natural silly funny realness that got me hooked on your channel.

  27. Giselle Luna on December 4, 2020 at 9:41 pm

    Omg thank you for this video lol

  28. Yeti Yeti on December 4, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    Thank you!! Your plants are gorge!!

  29. Ner B on December 4, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    How many days did it actually take for him to receive the package?

    In my experience, USPS’ 2-day shipping to/from IL /CA takes 7 days (weekends included).

  30. free fire Napuri on December 4, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Superrr. 😍😍😍😍❤️

  31. Akash naygandhi on December 4, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Ma’am I appreciate the information you have shared.
    May I know how long were the plant in such condition.
    I have a delivery for like 11hrs. Just wanted to check if it can resist so much.?

  32. free fire Napuri on December 4, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    27samindya@gmail.com thi my email. Thanks you ..🙏🙏

  33. Ner B on December 4, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    I use a digital kitchen scale when mailing stuff. You can get free USPS priority flat rate envelopes and boxes. Also free blank shipping labels.

    I print my own labels and then drop them in street boxes, if they fit. Otherwise, would have to hand them to the USPS guy when he comes round to deliver stuff or have to go to USPS.

    I’ve never mailed plants before but would like to do trades which is why I’m here.

    Your video was very helpful.

    Do you mail plants during the fall or winter or just put a hold on everything until spring and summer?

  34. Carolina Seville on December 4, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    Great video! What kind of camera are you using by the way?

  35. Janice Matles on December 4, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    What’s you parents plant shop?

  36. saoluver25 on December 4, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Do you sell cuttings?

  37. Barbara Black on December 4, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    I don’t have a raven zz either 😂😉 Brad is so fortunate to have a fantastic friend like you. Thanks for the video!

  38. Sherry Porsch on December 4, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    Great job packing the plants!! Did I hear you say” my parents plant shop”.? Do they sell on line an if so what’s the shop name??

  42. Alana Knowles on December 4, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    im about to ship home around ten different unique plants from college. I was able to drive them up but have to ship them back as 1. no one wants to watch so many plants and 2. I have to fly home. My plants very in size but they are bigger than the plants here. Should I just get a large box and do the same thing or should the process be more careful? Should I ship it as fragile?

  43. An Hour with Nature on December 4, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    I have an etsy shop and this helps a lot!

  44. A Person on December 4, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    is there any restriction?

  46. Lynn De Bruyn on December 4, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    i love this! i practically do the same. I often fixate the leaves by putting something around them like cardboard or make a ‘tunnel’ out of something… I wonder, how is the house ghost ? 😀

  47. vandana D on December 4, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    O god plz I also need a frnd who will send me plants I dont have…for free. Nice sustainable way of packing.

  48. francis gill on December 4, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    hi what about now, middle of winter, thanks

  49. Jan Owens on December 4, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    I ship flat rate, they give you boxes for free, pay online and drop off and run. They have different sizes and you can fill them up, no weighing involved. The best way.

  50. Shebuana TV on December 4, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    Thank you for sharing, I’m about to sell plants online.Wish me luck🙏😊
