    I ordered a couple new beauties from a CA vendor that were shipped on Tuesday and set to arrive Thursday. No big deal until I couldn't track the package for two days so I called FedEx and apparently it was misplaced or something and delivery was delayed. So now, my box of orchids has been exposed to very cold temps and is sitting at a sorting facility here in Jacksonville where we are having a record cold night (26 degrees as I type this). Im hoping it will arrive today and I'm so nervous about what condition they will be in. I will follow up..fingers crossed!!

    Oh no! Good vibes for you and the safe arrival of your new plants !
    Is there insurance on the package?

    Good luck with that. At least on the western portion of the trip it is very warm. FedEx seems to be having trouble with their shipping and tracking system. We have an iPhone being shipped by FedEx and their tracking system shows it stuck in Memphis with "NA" for the delivery date.
