Ive shipped and received plants where they spent several days to a week in a box. Middle of summer and dead of winter.
Crypts are an odd bunch. I've shipped them several states away (2 day USPS <$6) with success. I've also moved them from one tank to another at home and had a complete melt down (the plants, not me).
