Tip to protect your orchids from cold temperatures.

Orchid Protection

To protect your orchid from future cold damage, avoid watering it the day before you anticipate freezing temperatures. Dry roots and potting materials can help your orchid tolerate the cold. When the freezing temperatures arrive, water your orchids to keep them warmer than the outside temperature because groundwater is typically about 63 degrees. . You can also cover orchids to insulate them or move them indoors for the duration of the cold snap.
