My question is how long can java ferns go in a bucket or bag? I will be moving soon and it is about a 13 hour drive. Also how susceptible are they to temperature? How many can go in one bucket/bag and any other tips please.
I buy my Java Ferns at Petco, they sell them in plastic tubes that have a clear jelly that keeps the roots moist. The plants sit there for weeks before they are sold. As long as your plants don't dry out I would think they will be fine, also avoid cold temperatures
Should I poke holes in the bucket lid? My thought is to allow air exchange or is that more so for fish? Would they be ok for say 3 days? I am thinking if take down tank day before move, drive one day then next day set up tank. Safely what is their max time in a bucket?
