    How much sun do they get? Mine are given as much as they can take without burning. Moved outside for the summer, watered almost daily all summer, fertilized weakly weekly with my special brew.

    Thanks Jeff. I've somewhat hesitant about giving them too much sun, since I've read that they like more of a shaded light situation. Currently, it hangs, along with almost all of by Bulbos, from the peak of the greenhouse, but I have a 70% shade for the Phals and Paphs.
