    they seem to be loving in that location, or are they already in bloom when you moved them there?

    Your phals look great, Darren! Sorry I can't help with an advise as all my orchids are outdoor. You are taking very good care of yours!

    IF they bloomed like that right there - change nothing!! If you placed them there after they were blooming, then as Ron suggests - and East window will be better.

    Cheers,
