Barddas you are never going to believe it. My orchids are perking up and have new shoots on them!!!! Wow.
I've changed everything in the Fla room like you said and turned up the heater out there and it's nice and moist. I can't believe they look like I might now kill them. I'm so excited! Thanks for the helpful hints. It's working!

Good work, Milady! The Orchids are lovely plants, even without the flowers.

I recieved the catalog I order seeds, and plants from last week. Now starts the process of narrowing down what to get for veg. garden and flower garden.
I am continplating getting an heirloom tomato variety. These are very old types of plants. Basically to my understanding these Heirloom varieties seeds have been gathered since they were brought to the colonies, and had to alterations ( hybid activity). I thought it might be interesting anyway....

*** Update some of my info is not exactly correct... below are links that explain Heirloom, Hybrid, open pollenation etc.... sorry for any confusion....

Here is part of an article I found at HGTV.com for the whole article-
http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/gl_vegetables/art...1396502,00.html

So what varieties to choose? The choices seem endless. And if you wait till the last minute to get transplants, you might be stuck with what's left on garden center shelves.

Besides pleasing your palate, the variety has to do well in your climate. Gardeners in northern climates need varieties that require the fewest days to maturity. Pacific Northwest gardeners choose plants that tolerate relatively cool summers, while those in the Deep South need varieties that can take the heat. And then there's the resistance-to-disease issue.

"If you grow tomatoes in the same spot every year, you get a buildup of wilt spores and nematodes," says Doug Dalton, extension agent for Knox County, Tennessee. "So I always steer people toward wilt and nematode resistant varieties."

Then you have to factor in hybrid vs. open-pollinated, indeterminate vs. determinate. First, some quick definitions:

Hybrids are the result of a cross between two different varieties; seeds of hybrids usually produce inferior, off-type plants.
Open-pollinated varieties reproduce true from seed, retaining the same characteristics from one generation to the next.
Determinate tomatoes usually have compact plants that bear fruits at about the same time.
Indeterminate plants continue to grow and set fruits until frost. Staking is a must.


In the past, hybrids usually meant thick-skinned tomatoes with only good--but not great--flavor. A tomato had to withstand early picking, shipping, and long storage, and that often meant putting taste last. If you wanted superior flavor and color, you had to look at the heirloom varieties. These open-pollinated plants continue to offer some of the best possibilities for great taste.

My orchids are looking even better. Their new shoots are going crazy. Can't believe what a difference the extra light makes. My peace lilies look better too.
I just got a catalog of seeds and plants catalog. I've been drooling over it for days trying to decide what to order and what new veg I'd like to try this year. I thought about putting in an Asparagus bed. I read that it takes years before you start getting anything out of it.
I am going to put in some more fruit tree this year. I saw Cherry tree's in there and I'm going to put 4 out. I've still got to clip back limbs cause we are beginning to see some budding alread. We had a few really warm days up to 75-78 degrees and that triggered the Daffodil bulbs to start coming up...way to early and I hope this cold doesn't kill everything.
It's 29 tonight here in Ga.
