Proper temperature for orchids? : LUSENET : About Hawaii : One Thread

I live currently in Florida. I purchased some orchid plants and seeds while we were in Hawaii this December. What is the proper temperature for planting them outside? I live 70 miles north of Tampa. Thanks, ga

Don't know what kind of orchid you have, but for the most part, I wouldn't plant it where it is going to get below 60 too often. You may want to plant in a pot and raise in a greenhouse or indoors.
