    Question Conditions for Intergenics?

    I'd like to hear what conditions people are using for growing their intergenics...

    I have two growing areas, one med light with cool to medium temps, and one bright light with warm/high temps (Catts, Dends). Right now my little collection of intergenics is with the med light/med temp (Paphs, Phrags and Phals). They seem to be doing okay, but I wonder about getting them to rebloom....

    Maybe not enough light??

    Can they take the high light and temp of the Catt growing area?

    Some of my intergenics need a definate rest period(cooler temps) , some just keep making new growth in the warm/bright conditions in my growroom over the cooler months.
    I moved several to a west window(unheated) from April onwards & most have flowered or are spiking.
    Colmanara,s are flowering machines for me , they just keep putting out spikes as soon as a PB(or PB,s) have almost matured.They spent the cooler months in the growroom getting as much light(& bit more) as they can take ,slightly higher than my Phals.Wilsonara,s are about the same as the Colmanara,s but a little slower in growth.
    Miltiniopsis do seem to need a rest period.
