41 days in a parcel returned from Europe, 4 cuts damaged in 37

The plants have been staying 41 days in a parcel to Europe. A phytosanitary certificate replacing the one sent with the parcel was lost and the parcel was returned to Thailand.

In 37 cuttings with tips in moss only 4 have been damaged. The travel was from September to end of October. September, October and November are colder and good months for shipping plants ... if they don't freeze.

Freezing may happen if the parcels stay outside too long before loading. But freezing is not an issue in modern aircraft.
