This will probably be the last of my buying this year. I will be hard pressed to fit all these in now. I got two from one ebay seller and two from another. The praying hands and basjoo came in planted in large styrophome cups. They were as nice as my Misi Luki were but the praying hands was a bit root bound in that cup. I am not worried about it though as I have recieved worse root bound plants that took no longer to start growing than the ones that weren't rootbound. The other two plants from a and b tropicals were Tuu Ghia and Double. They were really wonderful. The Tuu Ghia came in a 5 ft. box, lol, and the Double looked really nice and large as well(though not quite as large as the Tuu Ghia, lol). I had to search around to find pots big enough for these plants that I did not expect to be anywhere near this big, lol.
Anyway, I didn't pay a lot for any of them and was very pleased with what I got for the money I spent.

Actually the shipping rates for priority mail are set very nicely. This one had another box taped to it(about a 3 ft box) and it still only cost $6.05. Don't always believe that more weight cost more in shipping, it does, but sometimes with Priority mail it does not cost near as much as you would think. I have also recieved a box slightly larger with three huge pups in it for $6.55.
Course all this may go up soon.

Priority shipping is also greatly based on Distance. I can not send one of my banana plants to florida (from Ca) for less than $10.00. But then again, my plants weight 3 + lb's.
