I've given up on them as they're the one orchid that never does well by me!

Meanie:

Don't give up! Just put it in your back yard like I do...and it'll bloom. lol! :>)

If Meanie puts an orchid in his back yard now it will die for sure!!!

I was just giving him a bad time! :>)

I'm not sure how cold it is where Meanie lives...but, I'm sure it would be too cold for this orchid to grow outside now.

Not as cold as some, but we have seen -10 overnight!
We can't provide ideal conditions for all the different orchids I suppose.

Meanie:

-10ºC would burn most orchids to toast!

Meanie:

That's funny! LOL!!! :>)

If I lived in a climate where it go that cold I would probably be an ice cube! I've actually never felt a temperature outside this cold in my life. Coldest I've ever felt was 17ºF/-8ºC at Lake Tahoe, CA. (located in the Sierra Nevada range)

Hey! I just noticed something! How do you guys manage those "degree" symbols? I haven't figured out how to do it myself.

Scientific keyboard? I can't do it either!

Guys:

If you have a computer keyboard which has a ten key pad on the right (windows based computer only, not a Mac). You can press: alt + 167 and the degree symbol will appear.

Here's a link to help:
