A couple of months ago our family got together at my mom's house. It was really cold and rainy that day. My mom, who happens to be a green thumb, has this collection of orchids she was concerned about. It was supposed to be one of the coldest nights of the year and she knew that if the flowers stayed outside they would die. Well, they weren't really flowers yet. At the time they were just pots of dirt, and some of them had stems but if you know anything about orchids, until they bloom again, they are just a pot of dirt and a bald stem.
We began our rescue efforts and relocated more than 50 flower pots safely into the house. This is Florida and yes we have the most ideal weather but that night, with the cold and rain I remembered why I moved away from the North.
Unfortunately some of the big plants that didn't get relocated into the house that night showed signs of distress a few weeks later
