When You’re as Cold as Ice, Do Not Sacrifice Your Orchids Over the Winter Months

  • Orchids under cover need to be watered from time to time
  • If you don’t have any additional heat they can be allowed to dry out somewhat between watering
  • For those who have some warmth, they can be kept moist
  • Continue with regular applications of snail bait
  • Keep an eye out for aphids on developing spikes, particularly on the early flowering natives
  • For some of us, need to watch out for mice and rats
    • One or two solid block baits nailed or screwed to a piece of wood seems to be the way to go
