Hello, I ordered live plants from BCP, and already 9 days passed and still not arrive ñd to my country. They are shipped bare root. Will they die if they come in 20-30 days?

Yes they will they will look all pale and will dry out because of no light and hardly any water

BCP doesn't currently allow ordering live plants because they're closed for the summer (and due to the pandemic,) so I don't know how you managed to order anything.

I got tracking number as ems but last time i order seeds they took 21 days to arrive, but now is in international post and current location cant be tracked. They are zipped with moss/wet napkin. So humidity not quite the problem but light. I was told that 6 weeks may stay but will need nice long recovery.

I would of thought the leaves will die but plant may go lightly dormant and like you said need a long recovery. I recently bought bare root plants from abroad they took a couple of weeks but all 7 of them survived I think as long as roots and rhizome are ok they will come back.

Take a look at the pictures in this post. I bought some flytraps from a seller in Slovakia, and it took 30 days for them to arrive. They were not happy about spending an entire month in the dark. However, they have since recovered and are doing fairly well (I need to take some new pics and post a follow-up).

Idwaneo if you mean how long to recover it varies. I would say a couple of months but it depends on growing conditions and state of the plants. If they have some green left on the leaves this will make photosynthesis much easier and in turn they will recover quicker but i would baby them for a while dont shock them if you can help it. Introduce full sun gradually but they are going to be starving for light. Other option is bcp customer services to see if they will send you another plant but with covid 19 there are bound to be shipping delays.

I mean a couple of months to recover enough to put out new growth not return to a full size plant.

Oh sorry it was about 16 days and plants were still in good shape considering the delay just very slow to put out new growth. Some dead traps and plants looked limp from all the humidity in the Ziploc bag. Shipping was from Germany to UK.
