    Default Best location Phal, cattleya, Dendrobium orchids

    I am in the Philippines and I have moved to a new house. My only space where I can put my Orchids is at the back Patio or the second floor balcony. (East) I also have a courtyard in the middle of the house (no roof/skylight) where I have my pond it do not get top much sun given its in the middle of my house. I tried putting my phal and dendro at the ledge of my balcony getting direct morning sun til 10 but I noticed that the leaves of the dendro is turning yellow and falling out. The potting media is coco chips for dendro, sphagnum most for Phal and charcoal for Cattleya. Right now my orchids are on my balcony floor had to remove it from the ledge. I hope somebody can help me. Thanks in advance.

    Have you repotted your orchids? The best way for me anyway is to grow my orchids in similar medium so that when I water, they all are on the same schedule. Maybe your dendrobium is staying too wet?

    Can you post photos of the grow spaces and plants?

    Good luck.
