Orchids outside in Florida for summer

Postby Btownsend » Fri Feb 03, 2017 5:06 pm

I live in central Florida. Are the warm, humid temps going to create too much heat to Leca on orchid's roots? I would be putting the pots on a shaded lanai.

Put the plants where they need to be for the right light/shade level. Water, evaporating from the LECA will prevent overheating.
