I have found a toilet paper roll cup is nice to start it Cuz I can put them in a bowl and put a little water in the bowl, let the towel roll soak up water keep the dirt wet but not soaking. I will traid plant these in a week or two and start a bigger batch.

Just a suggestion.....

You might want to get those little fellows out of those moldy tubes, before the mold kills them.

Air-cured tobacco is usually cured preserving in constructions with a roof, however with open sides in order to permit air to easily flow into. This method requires from four to eight weeks.

This is a patient man's endeavor, tobacco manufacturing.

Then you bring it into 'case'. Pressing depends on what you are after in your finished product, how you treat it and how much pressure and whether or not you heat it and at what temperature you heat it if you do. Will there be a topping? Would you add it before pressing or after? Lots to consider!

Live plants are shipped often. It's all about how one packs the plants so they don't move and stay in tact. Not difficult at all.

Watch this video on how to ship live plants without potting. There are many more videos, so you can get an idea how to ship different live plants.
