Planning on ordering some from aquarium plants.com and wanted to know if the plants will survive. They're located in South Dakota and I'm in Ohio . The plants would be few species of crypts and anubias, java moss and a Amazon Sword.

aquariumplant's.com is where I order from, and for five extra dollar's,,they will provide styrofoam box which would help during cold weather.

I like that company, too. Ordered from them once and will be placing another order in April. Unless you are really hurting for plants, you might want to hold off until the weather warms up. Plus, some of those like java moss, anubias, and some swords can be found at most pet stores. I've even seen some crypts at my Petco.

Just ask to see if they can include heat packs. I've ordered in the winter before and I'm in NY. The plants arrived and were very very cold. I was unsure if they would survive but to my surprise, not one died. So I'd say as long as they don't freeze you should be good.

Just make sure you get a heat pack even if you have to pay extra.

I live in ohio too and I've had all sorts of plant packages sent this winter: insulated, insulated and heated, heated, and nothing at all. Seems like if your weather stays above freezing they tend to survive as long as they are insulated and heated. I've never ordered from the site you are talking about but I've heard nothing but good reviews about them so I assume you will have no problems, and even if you do they probably have a LAG on them.

Goodluck!

What a coincidence ! I just placed an order with Aquariumplants.com and I live in Ohio. They do a great job of packaging and unless we have a severe cold snap, I think (hope) the plants should be OK. I placed an order earlier this winter and got lucky in that we had about 3 days of 50-60 degrees when it shipped. This past summer I received a shipment where the plants were all but cooked. Good luck.

Thanks for all the replies guys . I think I'm going to maybe wait for some warmer temps to roll through before I order. Their is only one Lfs that sales quality plants around me and they are very overpriced so that probaly wouldn't be a good option

plants ship quite well in winter. Infact the delicate ones are best shipped in winter. the weather keeps them crisp. and if it's from a reputable seller, they will most certainly package it properly :)
ot's the warmer weather that you have to watch out for, that when pol then to receive bags of mush.

Yeah just recieved mine on Friday, and they were all in perfect condition. I bought mine from aquariumplants.com. They packaged them very very well.
