According to Charles Baker's culture info on Orchid Wiz, 3000 to 4000 fc. As bright as possible short of direct mid day sun and strong air movement at all times.

I've read that too, but sometimes the Baker culture sheets can be based on faulty information (or at least out dated). Also, the grower told me to keep it with my phals, which struck me as weird for a cym, though they could have been talking about general environmental conditions, sans light

i've had it for a year, and have experimented with giving it higher levels of light, but just wanted to get some personal feed back prior to taking the plunge.

thx

PS how do your other cyms bloom for you, in those conditions?

my hybrid cyms all bloom well - my one other species cym - ensifolium - also hasn't bloomed, tho it took a down turn this year, not really sure why I've had my dayanum about 2 1/2 years - was a small division, came bare root, so I could understand it taking some time to bloom, but it's been growing well since I got it, and I am getting frustrated. It's possible that where it is growing, in winter, gets a lot less light than it does this time of year, and it's smaller size may be keeping it from getting enough light - so I may try a spot that gets more sun in winter. Or, I may try to find space inside somewhere for it in winter ... *sigh*

Anything I have ever heard about Baker's cultural info is it is the trusted go to resource. It's based on exactly how they are found in the wild and can't really get out dated unless the plants have evolved that much since it was written.

I grow my plant with cattleyas. It likes strong indirect light. In summer, about 50% shade is suitable for them.

Mine successfully grow and bloom hung high all year in a greenhouse of cool growers i.e. more light, more humidity and more heat than outside in Northern Ca.
