Will aquatic plants survive on 2-day shipping? They are coming from arizona (don't know the weather there) and are coming to Illinois. It is 70-80 degrees in the day here (50-60 at night). Hopefully they will live!

They will be fine. I order mine from NY and they come in plastic bags with a bit of water, then wrapped in newspaper and boxed well. They will be fine.

Okay, great. I am glad they will be fine. Thanks lady hobbs.

Good time to order all the plants you need so you won't be having winter deliveries. Sometimes those trucks get loaded at night and set out over- night getting pretty chilly.

and its not too hot, like 100 degrees, so this time is a good time.

Oh no! Since I my plants are shipping today (thursday) and they are 2 day shipping, the plants are supposed to come saturday right? But fedex doesn't ship on saturdays. So they are coming monday. Will they survive for 4 day shipping?

Did you order from Arizona aquatic garden? I just ordered from there too and mine should get here tommorrow. I'll let you know how they did. Why did you get two day shipping? it is only $5 to get overnight.
I've had plants shipped in from Africa. 5 day total time in the box, they were fine.

I don't think so. The ordering information said over night starts at $35. I thought 2-day would mean that the plants come on saturday, because I don't have time during the week.
