Wow. That is quite cool. If it is related to Amazon, I hope they will do other types of orchids, too. Phal-type Dendrobiums, Oncidiums, Cattleyas.... :)

If you can quickly find a systemic fungicide (Daconil, etc.) and treat all your Cattleyas, that would be best as this tends to go through the entire plant quite quickly. If not, any good fungicide...

It should be alright. Most orchids are fine for a few hours as long as it doesn't get below freezing or left in full sun on a hot day.
