Q.You Might Consider Making Your Information Clear For Non-northern Hemisphere Readers

Zone South Africa | leslie_powrie added on September 29, 2020 | Answered

In your page https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/orchids/indoor-orchid-care.htm you mention east to south-facing window or room and 15 degrees. I suspect that you are in the northern hemisphere and so for us in the southern hemisphere it would be east to north-facing. I suspect that 15 degrees cooler is Fahrenheit, and so it would be more like 7°C to 8°C cooler. Just so you know there are people in the other hemisphere, and we are not so behind the world as to still use Fahrenheit, Imperial measurements, and so forth 😉 But thanks for your article. Fortunately I grew up with Imperial measures and am an ecologist, so I have an idea of why the east to south-facing window or room is important – in the north… Cheers from the Fairest Cape in the Whole Circumference of the World – Cape Town, South Africa 🙂 Les Powrie
