Overwintering Orchids in Zone 9a

Yvonne added on October 1, 2012 | Answered

I have reed orchids that were given to me 6 months ago and I know I must bring them in. Now I cannot turn the heat on because of personal reasons, so how do I keep my orchids from dying? What if I cut a milk gallon botton and put it over the orchid, will this help? I can't beleive I'm the only one with this problem. ANY SUGGESTIONS WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU

Since you live in zone 9, they should be hardy where you are and would not need to come in for the winter. If you have concerns that there may be a frost that would damage them, then the temperature in your home, even without extra heat, should be fine for them to survive in.
