    Default Help with Pescatorea lehmannii

    Have had this orchid for a few months now. Had it in pseudo-greenhouse where it gets morning shade, light diffused light in afternoon, and some almost direct light in early evening. The leaves when received were somewhat spotty, but the few leaves that has grown is also getting the same way. Temp in greenhouse can get in 90 in late afternoon but is very humid. Wondering if it would be better to grow under artificial lights in house or east facing window. Anyone with this orchid please share.Name:  IMG_1799.jpg

    Hi Monica.

    I find they do really well in sphagnum in air-cone pots, in dappled sunlight, and kept between 60° & 75° year round.

    Are the spots on the leaves due to too much sun or something else.

    Can't say for sure, but I'd guess so.
