Default Lighting recommendations

Hello!!!

I currently have a light I purchased from Lowes. The brand is called Boost and doesn't have any major specifics on it. Here is a link for it.

Access Denied

I don't think one of these is enough for the plants I currently have. I like the length because it fights my shelves nicely, but I just have a feeling it's not quite up to par.

So for reference, I have 2 dendrobiums (i wasnt super interested in these BUT they came as friends with an oncidium i puchased), multiple oncidiums, a few phals (these guys just sit in my window sill) and a few cattleyas.

I can sort higher light need plants from lower light need plants, but I really want to know is this light sufficient to get some blooms? Any recommendations on something that might be a bit better quality?

Thanks!

Almost any light can be “enough to get blooms”; it’s a matter of intensity, and that can be managed through the distance from the light to the plant.

In my opinion, the best “bang for the buck” comes from those sold by botanicalleds.com. (Formerly theorchidhobbyist.com)
