    Default Gastrorchis Francoisii

    Hello group,
    I bought a gastrorchis and received it on Wednesday. Someone just told me that they don't do well in Florida ( I live in Tampa).
    Does anyone have any advice?
    Thanks,

    Noe

    Since you are growing in a greenhouse, it should be fine, Noe. I would only be concerned if growing it in a window of a home.

    cheers,

    Hi BD,

    I hope so, I read about gastrorchis and thought they were very similar in requirements to phaius...but apparently they don't like hot weather. My phaius stay outside the greenhouse most of the year and only go inside when temps go in the low 40s....
    Thank you for the reply
