Cool Growing Orchids Update – Some good news & some bad news
Today we take a look at some cooler growing orchids, such as the Miltoniopsis, Masdevallias and more!
🦋 More info below! 🦋
There are some Orchids which are doing quite well for the temperatures in my grow room! Oncidopsis Nelly Isler and Miltoniopsis hybrids appear to do quite ok. They still flourish in colder months, but things are not bad.
Dendrobium cuthbertsonii is doing great as well and is still in bloom! He has been in bloom for the past almost half a year 😛
Angraecum germinyanum is also doing ok, I am surprised by this one! This orchid was super set back at some point.
Masdevallias… are not happy at all. I am going to plan B, as they look like they will not make it at this point 🙁
