The weather that we are having is not normal for this time of the year. It is a cold snap with back to normal temperatures in a few days. By Monday the high is 88 degrees Fahrenheit and the forecast shows many days of warm weather. For this reason I decided to leave my tropical plants outdoors for now. The frost cover will protect them and tomorrow I will uncover them and the orchids will look so pretty.
Eventually I will have to take all tropical plants indoors and get the elephant ears ready for winter storage. At the moment I am putting that off. I want to prolong the garden season as long as I can.
Do you have orchids or other tropical plants? When do you bring them indoors?
Here is a photo of tropical elephant ears in container.
