Our house warmed up to 85 degrees, and all of the orchids in flower dropped their flowers within a week. However, the plants are fine, the AC is fixed so on we go! I do plan to start it's own thread sometime soon.

    That is a gorgeous plant Carol! What temperature do you usually maintain indoors? Our AC has been out all season so far and it's gotten as hot as 95 in here. Thankfully the plants do not seem to mind! It may be because we have ceiling fans and keep the air circulating. Who knows! They seem very adaptable. I was a little concerned about when I start running the A/C. I tend to like it cooler and I didn't want to upset the plant babies!

    Our plants should mate Carol!

    This is my Fair Catherine 'Nice Partner' - I bet they would make gorgeous babies!

    Oh yah! Nice floofy whites!

    Usually I keep it under 80 degrees, its just turned from spring type weather to the warmer temps, so its been more like a little heat at night and open the windows during the days (70's), then poof! 85 degrees inside and 94 out! I like it cool too.

    It's been from 60-95 in the past week here. It's probably going to stay in the humid high 80's now so it's AC time. I hope they don't mind!
