I saw them naturalized in the ground at an orchid nursery in Halfmoon Bay a few years back.  They were doing beautifully.  But the summer temperatures in Mountain View will probably be a bit warm for them.  The summer coastal fog keeps Halfmoon Bay fairly cool in the summer.

I see that the Bay Area is outside of their comfort zone, but that it's possible for them to grow here.  Does anyone have knowledge about their success here?  Also, where one might obtain bulbs next fall?
