    Default April blooms

    My plants are adapting to life indoors under a grow light, so the new growths are not quite as tall and the flowers smaller. However some blooms to enjoy non the less...C schroeders love x delta mist, L purpurata aco aco, & C Iricolor. The Iricolor had strong fragrance when it just opened and all night also!!!!

    So, what kind of lights are you using, and how far from the leaves ?
    I have a lot of cattleyas - all grown under (supplementary ) lighting, and my bulbs get to be bigger and better than the ones they had when the plants arrived, and presumably grown entirely under natural light.

    BTW it is is so helpful if you fill in some details of your personal profile - like where you live ; we don't need a street address of course, but an area - like North Pole, or Borneo , gives us some idea. See what some of the regular contributors say about themselves.
