@ curlykid - I don't know my orchids but I'm guessing you're referring to the marbly one on the left? Yeah the bloom spike throws it off. It was the most suitable of what I had avail and I didn't want to leave that space empty.

@ Julio - ya can't see em, but there's 1.0.1 Veradero in the first and 0.0.2 blue truncatus in the other.

@ Mitch - Yup, two strips each cube. Just started using them so can't tell how well/not so they are for plants. I should go with a lower K w/o blue but I like the color temp.
Glad everyone likes!

I'd go with the 8,000K ones if you can. That would be a lot better for the plants, but still not ideal. What you have no most likely will not work well.

That it is. My viv mix is roughly 1.1.1.1 orchid bark/coco husk/fern fiber/charcoal. It stays fairly wet (fixed that) and seems to grow quite well in it. I dont know if it makes much of a difference or not but Ive kept only the roots in the substrate vs the actual stems.

Good luck! One of my fave viv plants.
