How about this weather? I am anticipating a very good orchid season coming up because our temperatures have been so mild lately, especially with night time temperatures dipping into the 50s already. These cool nights are one part of the puzzle in order to get some plants to bloom in the winter indoors.
When attempting to grow tropical plants, we are met with the challenge of mimicking their native habitat, which is difficult inside our homes. We can allow Mother Nature to take care of some of this, outside, for now.
Move some of your orchids, holiday cacti and clivia outdoors for the remainder of the season because we can initiate bud set through managing day length and nighttime temperatures.
