Moth orchids like most but not all epithet orchids don't like direct sunlight they naturally live in forest under tree canopies. They preference indirect light particularly in summer when the sun will be far to strong and bright. The early morning sun should be ok. Dappled or light shade is perfect.

Im not sure if you can get this book in the US but if you can the happy orchid by Sara Rittershausen is extremely good, eaisy to follow with lots of information. She owns a Orchid nursery here in the UK which her Grandfather started and has been going now for 70 years. They do have a YouTube channel as well I belive which is worth looking at the nursery is called Burnham nursery.

Beautiful orchids. May try some. They have jacked up the price here during COVID. Some are 65 dollars. Too much for me right now. Will enjoy yours 👍🌸

Wow that’s a lot Diane @hkyfvr $12 is the most I’ve paid.

comment
hkyfvr

That is a much more reasonable price. Things in Canada are more expensive than in the US due to our dollar being 75 cents or so USD. Costco used to be the cheapest at 20 dollars but cannot go there due to lockdown. Even the local garden centre is expensive now. Only the mini ones are affordable. Will wait till they come down. Will enjoy yours 👍💛💖
