Lively Root Keeps Your Plants Safe & Warm with Plantagonia Gear

Plants are a little/lot high maintenance when it comes to being shipped in a a closed box. They’re alive, fragile, and tend to be a little dirty sometimes too. We’ve designed packaging to address all these factors, but there’s another factor that’s proven extremely difficult—cold weather. 

Vendors like FedEx, UPS and USPS route packages through freezing cold areas, where they often sit in dark, cold and lonely places. When temperatures dip, plants get sick and cranky.  Who could blame them?  Their leaves blacken and they are prone to structural damage from cold temperatures.  This is especially true for houseplants who are used to living in a toasty, climate controlled green house.

Luckily for all our plant friends, we have the latest Plantagonia gear to keep your plant safe and warm on its way to you.  Before we box your plant, we do the following to keep it cozy:

  1. We wrap your plant in a thermal blanket
  2. We add a 72-hour heat pack (like the ones you put in your mittens but for plants).  ****Extremely important: The heat pack is not fertilizer nor is it safe or healthy for your plant.  Please do not add the contents of the heat pack to your plant
  3. We nestle your plant is a shiny, stylish cool shield thermal wrap
  4. We box your new best friend up, give it a hug and send it on its way to meet you

Lively Root Plantagonia Packaging

If you live in or are shipping a plant to one of the following areas during the winter, your plant will arrive all bundled up with our USPS Lively Root cold weather packaging.  Please choose a plant labeled "ships hardy" to ensure the best results.  Plants without that tag will not be able to handle the trek unless you choose expedited or rush shipping in checkout.
