Most things in the US are shut down, including all spring orchid shows, but the plants keep on growing. Our growing facility is in a secluded semi-rural area, with access currently limited to our family and one person who helps with packing. The best estimate is that the virus can only live for 2-3 days on a surface, so there should be no reason to worry about anything being transmitted from the Seattle area because USPS priority mail takes that long to be delivered. If you are worried about contamination during handling in the USPS system, you might want to designate a “quarantine area” for any packages or goods you receive from any source via any carrier. Maybe the best course of action is to take reasonable precautions, but carry on normally to the extent possible.
Due to all of the closings, we have extra time now, so are starting to update the website. Keep watching for new plants to be listed. All items are in limited quantities, and some sell out quickly.
Best wishes to everyone to stay healthy physically, financially, and in every other respect.
