    I thought that I was going to be able to take at least a few out during the days, but we took a turn for the worse. We have been hovering just above freezing at night and not quite 60's days.

    Jonada - I just put my bright light and heat takers out on the balcony - and it's been 80s here days and 60s-70s nights - remember it's not quite April yet - and you're ALOT further north than me, so don't get discouraged. You'll have a good opportunity to get them out for some fresh air - I'm still jealous and awed by your shade house.

    Well, here's an update on the shade house. I have had the orchids in it for a couple of weeks now. It was really organized and then we had 3 days of high wind. So now it is what it is.
