It has been cold, but while I was in NC for Xmas I guess it was pretty warm here in Pittsburgh also. As long as my plants stay underground during those warm spells I'm ok, but it sure makes me worry each time it freezes and thaws!

My Oncidium Twinkle 'Red Fantasy' is in full bloom right now. It smells SO good! Hwra. Lava Burst 'Punani' is also in bloom. The Cycnodes is going out and this other orchid I have down in the basement is going dormant since it is losing leaves.

My worms are escaping from my worm bin...not sure why. It's not too wet or too dry.

Two of the habanero plants we are trying to overwinter are dead. Not sure why either...maybe lack of light since its in the basement.
