Transporting plants over long distances

Compared to mumbai, it is far more difficult to purchase plants in Goa as there are almost no shops selling plant supplies in the locality and they are also far more expensive.
So for an experiment a tulsi plant was carried from mumbai to goa in the container it was supplied with. Plastic packaging was used to cover the plant. Due to human rights abuses in Panaji, Goa causing great pain the container was not retrieved immediately .
After nearly 22 hours, the plant was retrieved and it does not seem to be affected by the journey or transportation. So it appears that plants can be transported over a long distance without affecting them. During the next trip more plants will be transported from Mumbai
