If you need to transport a houseplant, start preparing in advance: some days before moving stop to water the plant. The earth in the pots should be dry. The top layer can cover the cut cardboard around, this will help the earth not to sleep in the carriage.
Prepare wooden pegs for long plants. The peg to stick into the center of the pot and tie it to the stem of the plant. If the plant is very branchy, take a few pegs.
Top long plants protect bag from canvas or oilcloth, which flower like swirls.
For transporting the pots place them in a cardboard box, setting pots between walls of cardboard.
If plants have to be transported during cold weather, in a box with pots, place a few plastic bottles filled with hot water. The remaining space will fill with a soft paper or special packaging film with air bubbles.
In the truck box with the colors of the ship last but not least, first place individually Packed large flowers. Plants in the car mount to avoid falling off.
If it is not possible to pack the plants together with the pots, we close the root system damp moss and wrap each flower in a separate package. Then you can put all the plants in the common box to put inside the normal building insulation, if travel is to be in the cold season.
Arriving at a new place of residence, immediately unpack and inspect flowers. Remove damaged leaves and pour the plants with warm water. Such care will help the colors to adapt after a move.
However, in the winter time do not rush immediately to open the package with flowers. The plant should stabilize to room temperature for several hours.
Transportation of fresh cut flowers is also troublesome. The most convenient way of transportation of such plants is the plane, where they are stored in a special isolated compartment, or special trucks-vans, which has created a particular temperature. Each plant is wrapped in a plastic layer, between layers of which retained a layer of air.
