    hmmm...might be tough to bloom paphs there. bright shade would be optimal, or some direct morning light. if it's just for a few months the plant will be fine if everything else is in order. might even look nicer with larger, darker green leaves.

    You could always add grow lights. A Paph wouldn't need strong lighting to encourage it along.

    Mine seem to like a west window and get good light in the afternoon to early evening. You'll know when you hit the right place as they will grow and bloom freely. I also occaisionally will use a grow light when we are in a really shady period like bad weather and no sun. I don't want to loose even a single day of sunshine that may be needed to bloom.
