    Phrags full morning sun until about 10.30am(East window)
    Phals sun varies.They are happy in my West window with about 2 hours of sun or out in the garden 50% shade & dappled.
    Paphs if they have mottled leaves then the same as my Phals , the others the same as the Phrags.
    Growroom should be set up this week so that,ll be a completely different kettle of fish.

    A lot of that will depend on your latitude and weather conditions too. What may do great in full sun up north would more than likely fry to a crisp in full sun down south; just something to keep in mind.

    I don't grow phals, but I'd keep them semi-shaded. At most an east, or very shaded south.

    Paphs & phrags depend greatly on the type. There are some in each genus that would be happy with about as much light, or less, than phals. Some in each genus will appreciate light that approaches that given to standard catts.
