    Too bad you can't lave them with friends/neighbors/family, then have them ship them to you when you arrive at your destination.

    do not even worry about light or temperature while the plants are traveling..
    neither is of concern for a few days..(or a week)

    it wont get too hot..not traveling from Washington state to Michigan this time of year..
    if it was from Arizona to Florida in August I might worry..but with the trip you are making,
    your plants will be fine.

    the bumpy road will also not be a problem..

    will you have access to the plants during the trip?
    can you get to them once a day or so?
    if so, just leave the pots sitting in the water trays, with a small amount of water,
    maybe 1/4 inch deep..if it spashes around it will be simply be absorbed by the newspaper and wont get anything else wet..

    if not, if you dont have easy access to the plants, I would wrap them up tight in clear plastic bags..then water cant be lost through evaporation, and they will go for a week easily without drying out.

    I'm going to be making a 1500+ mile move in about 7 weeks, and this is what I was going to do. I'm going to cram 50ish plants (orchids and CP's) into boxes after first putting them in plastic bags to keep the humidity up. I'll keep the A/C on in the day if needed. All told, I'm expecting them to be out of their comfort zone for about a week. I'm hoping I don't cause them to drop any pitchers in the process.
