An Orchid Obsession: A Great Packing Job

My order from Santa Barbara Orchid Estate arrived today.  I thought I'd show you the cadillac of packing jobs!  This is the criteria all sellers and buyers should use.

After I removed the top layer, I could see the first layer of plants.  How wonderful to see flowers and buds right off!

The pots were individually wrapped on the pots (the medium is secure) and around the buds.

Here is the second layer of plants in the box.

Each plant is surrounded by shredded paper and covered with a few layers of newspaper and taped like a swaddling baby!  And the baby emerges in bud!

And in this way all six emerge-in flower, in bud, and in sheath-in perfect shape!!!

All that is left is the bottom blanket of shredded paper beneath them all.  And a very happy orchid buyer, of course!
