    Hello, my name is Frank. I picked up orchids during quarentine and now I can't quit it. :) As a noobie, I'm hoping I can pick-up some tips here. I am in 9a zone so from what I understand Cattleyas are a good place to start, but again, I will soon learn more to know whether that's wishful thinking or if I'm on the right track.

    Cheers,
    Frank

    Welcome to the forum. Where are you growing your orchids. Under lights, on the windowsill, outdoors?

    I'm growing under lights this first year while I pay attention, this time around, to my natural light and wind/weather. I've never really paid attention until I saw the receipts on my catts. lol
