    I've had this same exact problem before. Unwrap their pitchers but leave their roots in the bag they're getting shipped in, to keep the roots moist but to give the pitchers air to breathe. Mist the roots in the bag to wet them if they're not damp enough. Don't put them into lots of direct sunshine yet though in that state because you might boil the roots live in a bag like that. If they could stand getting shipped for a few days in a dark box, they can stand a day or two of root misting and indirect light.

    scottychaos, thanks! I'll do that, then.
    thez_yo, that seems like a good idea but I got 3 replies for one idea, so I'm going with the root in water technique

    I second this. The sarrs will be fine. I've recieved neps I haven't potted up for over a week. I just kept their root balls wrapped in shapgnum and paper towel which I kept moist. They did fine.

    nightsky, you are actually the 4th person to agree. That's what I'm going to do.
