    Cattleya can be easy if you get the right kind for your growing conditions. I have warm with high sun levels so brassavola, encyclia, dendrobiums and vanda can be easy in my area. Windowsill growers in your area would do well with many of the Laelia types that like to cool off in the winter. You want to look for plants in the Intermediate range and stick with the compact growers. My mom lives in Michigan and even has a dendrobium blooming in her windowsill. This particular plant wouldn't do well as it needed to get quite large before it would bloom.

    Thanks Connie. When the orchid show comes back in May I will have to look for one like you suggested that might fit in with my crew. There are some for sake at big box stores but one like me would not know what I was purchasing.

    If you happen across something called a Rupiculous Laelia...Tolumnia...or Sophrinitis (Sc.); those will be a good start. The Tolumnia are tiny oncidiums that come in every color of the rainbow. They remind me more of a cactus than an orchid, but they like to be a little more wet than the average oncidium. We need to start a "windowsill" orchid section for those of you growing one like that. Hmm....I should message Bruce.

    I messaged Bruce and I'm guessing you will see a new section for windowsill plants soon.
