Default Free Orchids – You Pay Postage

I am running out of space and must toss out 5 orchids. If anyone wants them – and will pay postage from Huntsville, AL – let me know within the next 10 days; otherwise they are going in the bin. First come, first served. Pics & care sheets are attached (hopefully). The orchids are identified below. (I would prefer to send all 3 Ambionenses together.)

3 ea Phal Amboinensis

1 ea Pot California Queen 'Red Angel' SM/JOGA X Pot Paradise Rose'Hawaii'

1 ea 23669 Ctna. Why Not Sanguinea (Guaritonia) Gur. aurantiaca X Bro.

First Come, first served! Thanks, ROBB

Hi -
I tried sending PM, but it said you won't or can't accept PM's
So, I tried e-mail, through the board - Did you get that?.

OTOH, I just got your PM, but it won't let me reply - Same message as above.

If you would PM me again, with your e-mail, I will reply from my direct e-mail.
Thanks

I thought I would update this thread with something amazing !

ROBB kindly offered these orchids for the cost of shipping, and I, really just starting out with them, jumped at the chance, of course
So, we arranged it all, and she mailed them Priority Mail.
I mean, Alabama to north Florida - Day or 2, right?

Well, it seems that USPS sat on them for a week, then lost them for a second week, and they finally arrived yesterday!

We were both very doubtful that anything good would happen, but lo-and-behold, they were all alive and looking pretty good, after 2+ weeks traveling around the country in a box in the dark.
A great example of the resiliency of these plants, I think.
And, a testament to her careful packing job - A happy ending, all around !

A few orchids made it from Asia to Europe in the holds of wooden ships.
