You've worked hard to cultivate healthy house plants. And you want them to arrive that way at your new home. As you prepare to go new places with Atlas, use these tips on how to move plants. If you have questions, ask your Atlas Account Representative. We want your move to be a complete success.
Transport house plants in a temperature-controlled environment, such as your car. Atlas does not transport perishable items over long distances; extreme temperatures and lack of fresh air in a moving van can be fatal. However, for distances under 150 miles and trip times shorter than 8 hours, Atlas may offer service. Talk to your Atlas Account Representative about the best option for your plants.
When your Atlas Account Representative conducts the moving survey in your home, let him or her know you intend to take your plants. Atlas offers affordable packing materials for plants, and your representative can explain what you need.
If you have questions about caring for specific types of plants, see the chart below for tips on the ten most common house plants. You can also find answers on these websites: Department of Agriculture, National Gardening Association, Better Homes & Gardens, and Texas A&M Horticulture.
