Hot Temperatures Can Hinder Plant Growth

November 11, 2018

Depending on the crop you’re growing, temperatures that are too hot or too cold can hinder growth and development. Every type of plant has an optimal temperature range for producing healthy foliage and flowers. Temperature settings that are too high, coupled with no water, is a bad combination.

Temperatures for this orchid were too hot and it dried out and dropped all its leaves. Most of the canes have also died. Whoops!
