Greenhouse Sample Submission

Samples in plug trays, as well as unrooted and rooted cuttings, and plants in pots require extra care when they are packaged for submittal to a diagnostic lab. Before you mail the next sample, please take a few minutes to review these suggestions for packaging and submitting samples. This will help preserve the integrity of the sample during shipment and increasing the likelihood of a more accurate diagnosis.

For full instructions, see our page on Submitting Greenhouse Samples or download the Submitting Greenhouse Samples pdf.
