A few months back when shipping some plants to CA, I asked the local postal
fellow who said, yes, noncommercial people can mail plants hither and yon
without dealing with inspections or permits either one. Even into
California, which guards it roadway borders rigorously. Let me tell you, I
was amazed.

I usually poke a few vent holes in the box, wedge in cushion to prevent
thrashing about and send it the fastest method I can afford.
