planning for winter...(drat!)
Okay, I AM jumping the gun a little, but the coming cold weather will be my first winter as an orchid owner (read "addict").
I was hoping a few of the more seasoned (sorry) growers would be able to give me an idea of when they move the more sensitive plants indoors.
My main concern is the dozen or so Vanda / Ascocenda I have.
I'm in Central Florida, so there are only a few cold days each year, but I hope someone who has been at this a while can give an idea of when everyone comes indoors,-is it the nights that drop to the upper forties, mid-forties or lower.
Would some poly over the shade house be enough to get them through? (approx 5W X 9L X 6.5H)
I'm asking now because I will need to get something in place to hold them if they do come indoors, as bare root vandas are a little messy to try to water when almost all the house is carpeted .
I need to figure out in they'll be inside a couple of nights or for two months straight.
Thanks in advance
