Hi all, I've just inherited 6 lovely orchids. Trouble is,
with the size of them, the only place I can keep them is in my cold greenhouse. Any advice please ???

Many thanks,



Are they Phalaenopsis (Moth orchids)? If so, I'm afraid they won't like it out there as they need a temperature of about 18 degrees.

Haven't you got any window sills to put them on??

Hi Spritz, All orchy's are un named. Wont know what's what untill they burst forth Unfortunatly, they are all too big for the windowsills. Putting them there will only result in us getting 3 hours less sunlight per day
in the household.

Oh dear. They may not burst forth at all if they are too cold! :-(
