This is a discussion on Full sun within the General Orchid Culture forums, part of the Orchid Culture category; Things I have in full sun for 2/3rds of the day: Schomburkia sp. Myrmecophilia brysiana ...
Things I have in full sun for 2/3rds of the day:
Myrmecophilia brysiana (aka Schomburkia brysiana)
Brassavola nodosa (see my recent post in the Cattleya pic gallery)
standard Cymbidium hybrids
Stlma. Kelly 'Lea'
Vanda, strap-leaved and terete
Things in full sun for 1/2 the day:
Bardendrum Nanboh Pixy
Den. Coerulea Blue (phal type)
Nobile Den hybrids
Ascocenda and Vascostylis hybrids
I know most of these are repeats for you, but do note a couple of very interesting fun things:
1. Galeandra bauerii. This is a really cool plant, and I think it would take full sun all day.
2. Oncidium sphacelatum and Coelogyne pandurata. Both unusually high light tolerant members of species which usually will not take full sun. Both are also unusually large growers, with big showy spikes.
3. Stlma. Kelly. I wasn't sure if a Brassavola hybrid would take the high light which Brassavola nodosa will. This one has shown zero sunburn, and a good rate of growth. My bet is that Brassavola nodosa hybrids will follow this trend, to a significant extent.
My Laelia Purpurata Coerulea at least that's what the board thinks it is. It's in full sun from about noon to 5 when it starts getting shade from the coconut palms.
