Hello. I'm new to orchids, and have fallen in love with the genus Phalaenopsis. I hope to build a phal species collection. Right now I have three hybrid phals growing on a bench in front of my west facing balcony doors. Two NOID's and Phal. 'Soft Cloud', an unregistered Dutch hybrid.

I'm in the process of researching artificial lighting options, so that I can set up a larger growing area.

Welcome Anna! It is great to have you here. After your research, remember there are people here who grow under lights or have grown under lights and they wouldn't mind answering questions, I'm sure.

I'm an under light grower myself, with an occasional window involved. Welcome, and be sure to ask away! Enjoy
