    The first two orchids will appreciate a different environment than the dendrobium. I don't grow any Draculas and only one masdevallia, so my experience with them is limited. In my experience though, these orchids need lower light and cool temperatures. It is way to hot here in Arkansas for them.

    Beautiful orchids though!! Good luck.

    Cheers,
