Q. What temperature is best for growing orchids?
It depends partly on the species. Most orchids need a distinct difference between day and night temperatures to successfully produce flowers. Many orchids will grow well at intermediate temperatures of 65-75 degrees during the day and 55-65 degrees at night.
