Well,its warmer then average 17(10a). Lows in winter can push 32f, Summers are like in z24 in soucal..mid 70's are the standard here.
What its not is a SF z 17 10b. (above 40 lows in winter and about 62-64 for your typical summer day)

I guess the answer is no way. Thanks! saved me from needlessly killing an innocent Orchid.
And I am looking into the ones you listed. I'm trying to get the most gaudy orchid for the buck.
