Well... either there aren't too many people from the countries I listed posting in this forum or they aren't growing any epiphytic orchids outdoors year around.
In any case, the hardest part of growing orchids outdoors is selecting the best orchids. Here's a few websites that offer lists of orchids to grow outdoors. You can just copy and paste the site name into google to get to the site.
Incidentally, I would have just hyperlinked the addresses but I'm having difficulty with the moderator not posting my threads. A couple days ago I posted some reviews and ratings on several orchid books and included links to the bookstore I bought them from. The moderator informed me that linking to places that sold anything was forbidden. So I removed the links and included other links to non-profit sites and the post still wasn't approved. From an outsider's perspective these "guilty before proven innocent" restrictions are draconian.
On another orchid forum whose name I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to mention a member posted a question on cultural information for an orchid I have. So I referred him to Mr. Baker's website where he could buy an in depth culture sheet for the orchid he wanted to know more about. I was fairly certain I wouldn't be able to post a link to that very useful website in these forums because they sell stuff (OH NOES) but I just clicked on a thread in the "Frequently Asked Questions" category that was titled "Dendrobium Culture" thread and noticed that the thread starter included a hyperlink to Mr. Baker's website. What gives? How come that post wasn't removed for containing a link to a website that sells very useful orchid information? Couldn't that link be construed as advertising according to forum policy which I was referred to after including links to a book vendor that also sells very useful orchid information?
Believe me, I definitely appreciate not having to be hit over the head with advertising. Like, it would be nice if the advertising in these forums was tastefully done instead of having to read Jim's Orchid Supplies in between every response to a post. And trust me, I'm fully aware of the financial burden of running an online community because I run one myself. I'd link you to it to demonstrate non-obnoxious advertising but then that would be considered advertising now wouldn't it.
