    Default Too late?

    I have some multi spike phals that I want to sell on the auction site but is it too late for most people to get them? I just got a group of paphs in the mail and they arrived fine.

    Maybe I should just post them with a reserve or Buy it now and see what happens?

    What do you think?

    Hi Steven,

    Orchid-bids is undergoing a site wide change-over. We thought now with the cold weather it would be a good time to do it. All auctions and trades here at RVO are temporally suspended until we can finish the updates. It should not be much longer.

    You can still ship, but you have to be careful about where it's going and the weather in between. Priority is the cheapest 2-day service, but it can sometimes take 3 days. Watch for windows in the weather. You may have to hold off for a week or two.

    You always have the option of overnighting the plants. I've ordered in the dead of winter and I'll have stuff shipped FedEx with "Hold at station" instructions. That means I'll drive to the FedEx office to pick up the package so that it doesn't drive around in a cold truck all day.

    It's more expensive, but if you simply gotta have them, there are options.

    You can buy heat packs, they work great, about $3 each. They last for 2 -3 days.
