Temperature and HumidityWritten by Andy W
Individually and combined with each other, temperature and humidity (of the orchid's surroundings) can have a negative effect if extremes are exposed. As mentioned in the section related to photosynthesis, both temperature and humidity can have an affect on the photosynthesis process, perhaps causing the orchid to be in a state of stress. With regards to both temperature and humidity, steps can be taken to maintain an optimum level of both, making the orchid happy.
This topic will be the feature of the July 2017 Napa Valley Orchid Society's Newsletter.
