    Default Need advice for new Orchid

    Can you guys give me an idea of a good plant for low to medium light. I would like to have a few for my bedroom. I have 6 east facing windows that the sun comes through in the mornings. However, it gets up over the house pretty quick. It is still a good amount of light during the day but not direct light. Any suggestions.

    Phals would be a good choice.

    Hi fxman .
    Just been having a think and here is my list of plants that I think would work for you.

    Colmanara
    Phaphs
    Oncidiums of the crispum section
    Nobile type Dendrobiums
    if the room doesnt get over about 74degress then Odontoglossums could also be a go

    I agree with Murray and Diane! I would look into some of the cool vini-paphs! I just love the mottled leaves on them. It makes it nice when they are not in bloom.

    Cheers!
