Three different clones of phalaenopsis sanderiana in bloom:
They are really beautiful! I'm interested in where you are growing your plants. Greenhouse, under lights? The Brassavola plants appear to be in the house. Or maybe that is a display area?
Thanks for your interest, Marni.
No, I get quite humble conditions - a small glassed-in balcony in an apartment in a multi-storey building where I try to create appropriate conditions for my plants. The windows face south-southeast, it is very sunny in the warm season, and I also use LED lamps.
The plants are there all year round; there is no way to take them outside. In addition, the warm season does not last long, and we have harsh winters.
Course, the balcony is insulated, but in general I have moderate conditions.
No higher than 22-23 Celsius during the day in the hottest weather (split system) and about 15 Celsius at night; in winter night temperatures in the coldest zone can drop to 7-8 Celsius, but usually stay at 12 Celsius.
My plants are accustomed to this, even phalaenopsis species. With this culture they bloom 2-3 times a year, depending on the species.
All plants are kept in one place; I am comfortable with the hanging system of pots which are movably attached to horizontal brackets. This was a design of my own «invention» since racks in such a small space were not the best solution.
Thanks for the explaination. It is very ingenious and seems to work very well.
