I have shipped plants before but I want to know if I send plants in a bag full of water with no air okay will they be okay? I use Priority Flat rate boxes meaning they get to the destination in a short amount of time(I think nits 2 or 3 days.)

I usually just wrap the plants in wet paper towels and put into bags. No extra water to bring up the weight.

thats how my lfs sells them for transport home. works fine. don't squeeze out all the air... but it will be likely dark so the plants shouldnt use too much for photosynthesis purposes

Yeah, wet newspaper or wet paper towels work fine. As long as they won't dry out or be smashed, your good...or if they cook or freeze.
