    I worry over mine constantly...that they are too dry...or that it's going to be too cold out for me to water...and by to cold, I mean upper forties. Maybe I should relax a bit about them. We do have fog come inland most nights that it is cold.

    Well, when it gets to the 40's here I water like once every two weeks or something like that. Either that, I take them inside to water and use warm water. Then I take them outside again when they are dry. I didn't think they could withstand that much cold, but they were happy outside, even in that weather. I WOULD worry about fog and cold though---that leads to constant moisture, no?

    I am in the San Fran northbay area in CA...central Sonoma County...lots of moisture overnight and generally dry days unless we have what people here refer to as a 'storm'. Basically, a storm here is what we call 'sprinkling' in the southeast! Once that little piddly rain starts to 'pound' the region, I put the outdoor babies under an overhang where they get nothing but the fog moisture. And I do throw in some fungicide for good measure.

    I think they should be fine. One of the top Laelia anceps growers in the country lives in Napa. He uses moss instead of LECA. I buy lots of stuff from him.
