Default Re: Need Help on Orchid Video

I've posted a bunch o threads on Viv orchids, but the abridged, in my opinion must have list is this
High light and dry: we are talking under 6inches from the lights if you want: Dendrobium oligophyllum. Mine has been in bloom nonstop for over three years

Medium/high light but more moisture: Bulbophyllum kalimpong. This blooms 3 times a year for me and grows rapidly
also Pleurothallis longissima, but doesn't like the temps in the 80s quite as much

Medium light and moist: Masdevallia herradurae and striatella. These masdies can take temps up to the mid 80s and keep blooming off and on all year. Also most Restrepias fit the bill as well, bit if your Viv doesn't have seasonal cycles some might not bloom well. Most need temp dips into the 60s at night to encourage blooming. Species that are reliable are brachypus, trichoglossa, sanguinea, elegans and guttulata. Most Pleurothallis also fit into this category, and I recommend ornata, allenii, microphylla and fastidious

I like frogs with racing stripes
