    Default Orchidarium to arrive today or tomorrow

    So the orchidarium I ordered a whopping 4 freakin' months ago should be at my doorstep Today or tomorrow! Geez I feel like I waited a lifetime I ordered it back on march 19! Also my first seedlings, and first dendrobium plants at that should be arriving by Friday. Wih it being in the 90s all week and heat index into the triple digits I'm worried my new babies are going to be toast. Their coming barefoot. Jen already advised me to let them first soak for a good 2 hours before potting to let them rehydrate

    They are cool growers. So it depends on how you are going to set up you system.

    intermediate would be best for a wider range of plants, but you should determine what you want to place inside, and make sure they are compatible temperature wise. many intermediate plants grow well at room temp, so don't need the orchidarium. and they usually like a bit of temperature fluctuation between day/night and summer/winter. i would personally only get an orchidarium to grow either hot OR cool growers that would not otherwise bloom well in my home.
