I have a fair sized collection of bulbophyllums and other humidity loving orchids growing exuberantly in an outdoor greenhouse here in Tennessee. I am approaching a move in the end of October to Colorado Springs CO. We are selling our house and are going to be renting for a while. I am concerned about my orchids since I have never had much experience with growing them indoors (especially in a rather dry environment. Does anyone have any suggestions for indoor culture methods or tips on acclimating them to their new home?

This is how I accomplished that:

Multi-shelf chrome shelves from Home depot or Lowes.

LED Lights attached to the bottom of the shelf above.

Put plants in standard nursery trays on the shelves.

Cover with a humidity tent.

Most Bulbos I've grown do OK in relative humidity of 40% or higher. They need even more frequent watering in these conditions.
