Default help

Jacinta,
Have you considered inexpensive ways of making your house warmer. For
example: you could buy something for the windows to insulate them better so
that less heat escapes through the cracks near the windows; also if you have
a fireplace, check if there is a draft coming in through that (that's the
reason our living room is much colder than it should be, so maybe you have a
similar problem--we still need to find out how to fix ours). I think if you
put in some effort into insulating your home more that would be less
expensive than heating more. And if it is too cold for the orchids, chances
are high that it is not pleasant for humans either, so if you work on making
the home less cold both your orchids and you would benefit.
Good luck,
Joanna
