Shipping update – and more orchids soon.

My mantiskingdom email was down for a couple days since I was not aware that it expired as I use mantiDkingdom now, so I apologize to anyone who is getting late responses from me as most emails are just now coming through. I imagine some may have timed out, so if you have not received a reply from me for several days, please resend your email. If you STILL do not get a reply, it may be because I don’t like you. Just kidding. Sort of…

All orders are shipping Monday due to the holiday this week. Some of you already got an email about it, but due to my email issues I have noticed some of you were not aware.

I had more orchids hatch and am expecting more ooths to hatch in a week or so. The next batch will be posted before Thanksgiving.

Shipping reminder

I typically ship priority on Monday, and express on Tuesday and sometimes Wednesdays. If you order on Tuesday then your order will most likely ship out the following week. This helps to ensure your order is delivered the same week it is shipped instead of being held somewhere over the weekend, even if there are slight delays.

Bluebottle arriving next week.

My supplier for bluebottle pupae will be shipping next week, so I will have pupae to ship Tuesday or Wednesday.

Everything is up to day as far as shipping. Express is still the best option but so far I have had very few issues with priority, however I am still only shipping priority on Mondays, sometimes Tuesdays. Express is shipping Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Still no orchid hatches, sorry.

Bluebottle pupae delay. Oh, and ORCHID update.

My bluebottle order arrived mostly hatched, even with next day shipping. I will need to order more on Monday. Hopefully the new batch arrives fine. I will add more when my shipment arrives and confirmed stable.

I am still waiting on my orchid ooths to hatch. I have several at the moment. To answer the most common questions….

  1. I am expecting them to start hatching within a week or 2. Please sign up on the wait list to be notified when they are available.
  2. I will not give anyone a super secret heads up first.
  3. I am not accepting pre-payments or reservations for them.
  4. I will be posting here when they hatch as well as my facebook and Instagram so people will know when to keep an eye out. You should probably follow me on both.
