10 is reeeeeaaallly nice for the orchids....


Donít try to grow much other than tropical fruits and veggies though. Our sun and rain schedule can flat kill even the toughest temperate plants and the few that can survive donít fruit....not that Iím bitter, I have lots of deliciousness in my yard, Iíd just like a kiwi or an apple or a pear hahaha



The weather is always better....

You're in 9b after 35 years of life in zone 3... and want 10?!?

Agreed. Enough whining Chemtiger.
Yes, yes, of course, Iím done whining. I donít know how I grew orchids successfully in Minneapolis, but I guess I wasnít as hard on myself when I had a lot of vegetative growth, but no blooms for 2-3 years after I got each plant. I know now that my light levels were horribly deficient, but the funny thing is that I need to use LOTS of supplemental light here, too. Iím glad I learned how to care for the plants up there, because it made the care here seem comparatively easy.

I realize that Iím a few months late, but congratulations New Super Moderatorô! You and Roberta (right? I need to come on here more often, I apologize) are both knowledgeable and very deserving!

Thanks, Chemtiger - Do come back more often!
I think it earlier in this thread when you first asked about this... someone here had some experience with the process, and found it to be pretty uncomplicated for an individual (as opposed to a business)- With the appropriate documentation (I am sure just a permit number) the package is mailed through the suitable port of entry and then on to you. You should be able to get instructions from the involved agency (once you figure out which one it is) - don't know if it is USDA or Fish and Wildlife. You're quite right to want to make sure you have it correct before you start but don't think it is too complicated or expensive. I guess I need to treasure my Phal hieroglyphica... it's a great plant, I lucked into it at a society auction (I think it was donated by Sorella Orchids of Camarillo, California but don't know if she has it any more, a small vendor)

Oh, believe me, I understand about the fruit! We finally got bananas, but as it turns out, theyíre really plantains. But we have had some pretty good luck with citrus, last year I had so many limes, Meyer lemons, and satsumas that I took BUSHELS of it to a nearby food bank. I hope someone had a use for it, I couldnít let it just rot on the tree, it was really yummy, but I canít make every one of my meals citrus for X number of weeks! I donít even use pesticides or anything on the trees, I have had good luck with that, I think, because I live close enough to the Mississippi River to keep the temperature near the level of the ground above freezing, as the River doesnít freeze this far south, and I think Iím at 18 feet above sea level. But yeah, I definitely understand the desire for pears and kiwis, that may be a bit out of our league for me in zone 9!

Not to go too far off-topic like I always do, but I do wonder if I could successfully grow peaches or blueberries here, or if itís something thatís special with the soil in Alabama and Georgia, or Mississippi (I have a friend whose family owns a Christmas tree farm that also has a lot of blueberry trees, just a few miles north of Gulfport, MS), that allows for such lovely peaches in those states. Maybe thereís hope!! Or maybe Iím just craving something delicious and fruity to eat now!

Hi, yes, the more I visitóby ďvisitĒ I mean the opposite of ďlurkĒ which Iím very good atóthe more I want to do so, and then I cross into ďnot wanting to shut upĒ haha! Definitely treasure that Phal! [psst...if it decides to, you know, keiki, Iíll pay top dollar!] But seriously, it seems that thereís a cycle with some of these orchids, which seems to last about the same amount of time as it takes to go from ďsowingĒ orchid seeds to the approximate amount of time it takes to get a ďfirst-bloom sizedĒ plant. Iíve noticed this with this particular Phal, as well as the Phal. ďMini-MarkĒ (available in Europe, though). Normanís has some Phal. hieroglyphicas with the alba coloration, but Iíd be spending close to $100 if I include shipping, and I hear thatís not the best place to buy orchids (I was up veeeery late reading vendor feedback on here last night). Iím just waiting to hear from the USDA about the importation permit, and if I do get it, Iíd rather go that route. His feedback on eBay is better than whatís on here about Normanís (and most are from English-speaking customers, one from Louisiana, even, which is positive). He has both of my really hard-to-find orchids in stock, so if I can do it this way, Iíll be happy!

And again, congratulations on your promotion to Super Moderatorô!
