    I would offer to take another, but we had a bit of a disaster here. The fan that cools the greenhouse had a belt break and the backup fan's thermostat was not working, so my greenhouse basically cooked for about 4 hours. When I found it, the temp was so high I could not breath in there. I sprayed cool water and got the fan working again as soon as possible, but we are going to loose many orchids. Already, the oncidiums and phals have turned a dark brown green (this one included) and have gone limp. The paphs are looking terrible- especially the seedlings. It is too sad to think about really.

    It's so nice to hear that the green doesn't change as greens aren't very 'permanent'. They tend to turn yellow.

    So sad to hear about the disaster with the fan. Hope that all the affected plants recover. We are so lucky here to be able to grow our orchids outdoors 24/7. No heaters,no coolers, no fans, no thermostat to worry about.
