Take the plant from its pot and thoroughly clean the roots by placing under running water. Make sure to take out the soil from the bulbs and lay them on some paper towels to dry.
When completely dry, take some newspaper and wrap the roots. Place the entire plant inside a Ziploc bag and seal the bag. You may place several plants in a bag as long as they are not too cramped together. Label each bag.
Take a priority-mailing box and layer an inch of packing peanuts in the bottom. Lay a bag on top of the packing materials and cover again with a layer of packing peanuts. Repeat the procedure until you reach the top of the box. The topmost layer should be packing materials. The contents of the package should not move of shift when the box is slightly shaken.
Close the box and seal with packing tape. Address the box and put labels such as “Handle with Care.”
