putting orchids outside

11 years ago

I have only 2 phals. The light in my house is not all that bright due to carport overhangs on both sides and an awning on one side and a large tree on the other. (it's a single wide mobile home so there is only one window on each side on the ends.) I've thought about putting them out for the summer but am concerned for 3 reasons. Snails are a plague in this area....will they eat it or it's roots? It gets in the 90s a lot of days in the summer. My past experience with taking other plants out and then returning them indoors for the winter is that there are all sorts of bugs on them. Should I be concerned about these things? What are my options. Thanks again for the help!
