    On the first picture you can see a couple of phrags, dends and paphs and how far they are from the light. Usually put plants in spike a bit closer to the lights.
    On the second picture you can see a brassavola Little Stars, the plant its about 9-11" away from the light and as you can see it has purple coloration everywhere. When i first bought it i put it 4" away and the whole plant turned purple lol.
    On the last picture you can see the red leaf plant. That is a nepenthes, it used to be green but it gets so much light its almost red. The plant is about 14-16" away from the light. I might move it a bit farther away from the light but i kind of light the color and the contrast with the rest of the plants which are all green.
