Record-high heatwave taking its toll... Male
Default Record-high heatwave taking its toll...

S. Korea recently hit with the record-high heatwave, hottest temperature ever recorded since 20th century--with day temperature of 39C and night temperature of 33C... (That high night temperature...is the real problem.) It has been going smothering hot for almost three weeks straight.

By balcony has turned into a torturing ground for cool-growing plants. I lost couple of Cyms and even one of my Phals got exhausted and succumbed to rot. I managed to save my Masdevallias though, by moving them into my air-conditioned bedroom every night.

By the way, my Mediterranean herbs (sages and basils) are growing well, also my perilla plants are doing great...well that's a little bit of comfort..

We've had the opposite in Indonesia, a "cold wave". I don't know if such a thing actually exists but it's been cold/cool in the last few weeks. People have been getting sick... including me haha.

Luckily none of my plants are too affected...
Sorry for your cyms and phals...
I hope your masdevallias and your remaining orchids survive though!
