    Default Summering Orchids Outside

    OK...It's that time of year again. All the plants are out of the grow room and stuffed into the greenhouse. The only problem is that every year when taking the plants outside, the ones with buds (usually Phals) experience bud blast. Is there any way to prevent this? I know the growing conditions are very different in a greenhouse vs a grow room (i.e. humidity, temperature swing, etc). Grow room was 80% RH and 60-82F, Greenhouse is around 50% RH and 50 - 85F.

    Unfortunately the change of environment will cause that. If youo wwet down the floor of the greenhouse daily, it may increase the humidity level in there.
