    Default Which orchids prefer east window lighting?

    Have space on two east windowsills. Which orchids would do the best in this location? Have dendrobs, catts, vandas, epidendrums, encyclias, and cymbidiums. They are all currently under artificial lights. Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

    It depends in large part on how much light those windows receive -- not all E exposures are created equal. For example, do you have completely unobstructed exposure? Is there a large evergreen smack dab in front of the window? Is there ......................

    What kind of temperature range do you get in that window?

    What is the R/H like?

    Knowing such details is important in order for us to give you the most useful advice we can.
