I have a friend in the UK that I think would be willing to do it. Any tips on packing the plant? I think I would ask her to remove all the leaves, roots and dirt.

Mine rotted out at the stem base so I will have to get another sent over..Best I can tell you on the packaging is keep it small and light and don't put anything dumb on the customs declarations form that might make them want to take a peek inside.
