where should i put my rhyncostylis? I live in the philippines and its a tropical country.... I grow my orchids in my garden on the southwest portion are ,y driftwood with all my vandas and ascocenda. It receives bright light everyday but i noticed the leaves got scorched and it turned brown... or is it because of the fertilizer that i sprayed ....
Even though the rhyncostylis are vandaceous orchids, they require much less light in order to grow and bloom and be happy. High cattleya light levels suffice for these plants--any more light with warmer temperatures will cause them to scorch.
I would shade the plant a bit more.
