Orchid list Cold/Warm

General Discussion

by Charles Vella

Greetings. I would love to find a list of cool and warm growing orchids. I was given a small nursery containing quite a few orchids. Always loved them but never owned so many. A few have died and I have been told that I need to be carefull as Orchids survive in different temperature. Had a couple of "Draculas" that died along with a few others. I live in Barcelona and the weather here is more warm than cold (except winter). Anyone know of a list I can get of Cool and warm growing Orchids? I have searched the net but couldn't find anything.

    Hi Charles, There are sources that talk about temperature requirements in general or according to each species. St. Augustine Orchid Society in Florida comes to mind. Sue Bottom authored, “Cold Tolerance of Warm Growing Orchids” which is very handy for Florida growers. Also Orchid Wiz, the software gives weather information on hundreds of species. And Jay Pfahl’s Internet Orchid Species Photo Encyclopedia lets you look up individual species at www.orchidspecies.com
