    Hi Andrew,
    As you know, I grow in a greenhouse, so I am sure growing these in a window will be quite different. The phal should be fairly easy. Keep it moist (not wet) and it will bloom and bloom and keiki too. The Angraecum, Laelia and Dendrobium will require much higher light levels than that phal. check out the RVO care pages for light level for dendrobiums and compare to cattleyas and vandas too.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Does anyone have or worked with Angraecum Distichum? I haven't found much online about culture. Even tho I think I have the basics down but would like more insight. I was just wondering if anyone had experience with this little guy. Thanks
