Thanks Marianne, not sure about your climate. Mine does not get below 30 f , it would need to be under cover if you get colder than that. They do need sunshine to flower for part of the day, not full sun.

Your orchid is incredibly gorgeous Keryn!  Mine look good but have not bloomed.  Maybe some fertilizer today!

This is its spot outside, stays there all year under a weeping cherry. Very shaded in summer and it gets the winter sun. They start to flower in my winter and will be dormant during summer.

I'm not putting any house plants outside too much dust and bugs around here. Hoping to get the porch glassed in some day right now it has corrugated fiberglass blocking the sun. This place doesn't have very many places to put plants. Then in front of the windows they put heat/cool vents. Then when I get the South side all open to the sun my view will be that ugly trailer grandpa put there in the 70s.

Looks like you are getting settled again Vicky, you might have to shift them around until find the best spot. Have you got a veranda, I think your schlumbergera would do better with more light and fresh air. They like it warm , bring back inside for winter.

Wilma's mom's plant really looks sad since the move and it is sitting back there in the dark.

I finally remembered to take of a pic of my plant that is loving it at Marsha's. Here are the rest of my plants and I got a Meyer lemon.

Love your air plants Grant, they are so fun to grow. Your ornamental cactus look good too. I brought a brazillian edelweisse or sinningia leucotricha. A very fun plant if I can keep it alive.

"I just had a thought and looked it up. They could Gladioli nanus, or dwarf , miniature , baby gladioli. Not as formed as the modern type ????"

"I especially like the look of country gardens. More carefree and relaxed than a formal garden. Just my personality, I guess"
