When I lived in Galveston, Texas, we used to utilize the ice left over from
our adult beverages to provide cooling to the root systems of orchids that
required a period of cooler temperatures to flower. A lot more fun than
lugging pots around but I honestly don't recall it being that effective -
at promoting flowering that is.  Certainly made hot afternoons more
bearable for human folk.
