In my latest article for Natural Awakenings magazine, I go further in depth on how I do it:
As a side note, I went to Kanapaha Botanical Gardens for my birthday last month and came across a white orchid tree growing outdoors without protection. From everything I’ve ever read or been told, it’s impossible to grow those this far north… but we’re still close to their range, so somebody decided to try – and it worked.
You really don’t know if something is truly impossible until you give it a go yourself. And if you fail, try, try again.
For more information on growing tropical plants outside of their normal range, check out my book Push The Zone.
