Re: ground orchid?


I think the problem will be more with the dryness than the heat, but considering that the Orchidaceae are probably the largest of the plant families, I can't imagine there aren't some out there in California.

So it's been a week and no AHA. I don't know what I might've suggested Theresa. Cymbidiums, as someone pointed out, might well grow outdoors for you--and they fairly inexpensive to try.

I don't know if there are any native orchids on the West Coast, but there are natives all over the Eastern States, particularly the ladyslippers [Ms Fatma was astounded to find them in the woods in Vermont last summer].

that). Now to figure out which ones will tolerate our heat and dry
summer air.

And another- http://www.thimblefarms.com/98orchidtf.html


So- not sure which one was discussed before- but looks like I have
homework to do to see what looks good now. I love the bletilla I have-
it is now a nice clump coming up. Can't wait to see the blooms. I have
both white and pink.

Jewell orchid is Ludisia, but I don't think it would take growing outdoors
year round. We keep it in the greenhouse. We do grown cymbidiums outdoors
year round -- they are in bloom now. Sure looked odd at Christmas
surrounded by snow.

I've got but a vague memory, and it doesn't seem to be budging. I think
I only grow three--Phaius, Spathoglotis, and whatever the jewel orchid
is, so it must not be one that I now have.

Yep- I've been hunting through that. Hey Jim- can you just list every
ground orchid you can think of? I thought this was something you had
grown in the past. It came up when we are discussing
Bletilla...(Hoping
to jog your memory as mine seems dysfunctional lately)

Might want to check the hort archives for this list.... if you have
some
idea of when the message was posted. It is sortable, by author, as
well as
searchable.

Donna





neither of these sounds quite right. It was something I could plant
in
the garden and would overwinter outside....

Hmmm. Wonder what it was? Don't think it was either Phaius or
Spathoglotis--although they'd be worth a try.
