    Dang, that is commitment for sure.. I always thought that Ophrys (at least in their native habitat) heavily rely on their symbiotic relationship with a mycorrhizal fungus; is this true? If so how do you account for this?
    Sorry for all the questions >_<

    They only rely on mycorrhizal associations for seed germination. I just grow mine in coir with a little lime mixed in.

    Man, that's awesome. Wouldn't mind setting up another planter on the balcony just for temperate orchids.

    Many species would do great year round in your area. Lots need high shade and some, like these last 2 I posted need a very dry dormancy.
