Shipping in the green

I don't see how perlite would be effective and vermiculite is messy. 
Both are sterile, but neither provides any force of protection to the 
bulb that may bring with it some fungus or mold spores. The pH is 
wrong, too, though I don't know if that matters in the short-term.

"In the green", still with foliage, IS TRANSPIRING, so I don't expect 
a totally dry substrate to be helpful, though it's definitely better 
to get a water stressed bulb instead of a rotten bulb.

I ship in the green with zero complaints, and I don't use perlite or 
vermiculite. So, what do I do? You all know how to find out, assuming 
there's not a mole in our ranks who would divulge my secret. ;-)
