I've used old whisky boxes and tubes in the past for several cuttings and/or tubers.

RE: shipping tubes

That's rather unusual. Have you tried checking with greenhouses, especially those that deal with orchids, with unusual plants like venus fly traps, anthuriums?

RE: shipping tubes

I sent an email to a plastic pot making company to see if they know where to find them. What are the dimensions of that tube? It will probably cost over $6.00 to mail them via Canada Post if it's over 2cm dia.
