Orchids to cure post killing frost blues


well we should have a killer frost in the next day or two. p allen smith (when i grow up i want to be almost just like him) recommends indoor orchids to help you adjust to life without your precious annuals. i strongly concur with him that moth orchids (phalaenopsis) are the best place to start. once in flower, they can continue for months. i was given the best advice from a hobbiest years ago. hopefully you have a spray fitting on your faucet, either way, each week let the water flow under the sink for five minutes. when i was working i made it part of my saturday morning routine.
