    Hi Jerry,

    First off, Welcome to RVO!!!

    Now, this matter of a chilly winter morning... as Diane said, it really will depend on the type of plant you have...

    cheers

    Hi Jerry,

    I live in Clarksville, Arkansas. We have a green house and do not let the temps get below 59 degrees. (Last night temps here got down to 31 degrees outside.) We grow cattleyas, dends, vandas, oncids, paphs, phrags, and several odd-balls (bulbos, stans, etc). Welcome to RVO and OrchidTalk!


    Cheers!
