To water, I use a 1/2 gal pump sprayer with wand.

For runoff, I just siphon out excess water from the floor pan with a turkey baster every few weeks. With what evaporates daily, there isn't a great amount accumulating.

Horticultural Lighting Group is a brand common in the cannabis growing industry, and fairly popular at hydro shops. They produce a variety of led bars and boards.

You're correct, that's Bc. Maikai (B. nodosa x C. bowringiana) It's easy to grow, but the flowers don't always clear the leaves and present well.

Found and bought one of these for me new orchid cage Being dimmable I should have no problems getting the light that my plants want.
I really like these ACINFINITY lights and the price is right. I needed some axial DIY fans so Its how we got to the lights.

IONBOARD S22, Full Spectrum LED Grow Light 100W, Samsung LM301B, 2x2 Ft. Coverage - AC Infinity


The cannabis culture promoting orchid growing. It has helped the home orchid engineer tremendously as a side effect. They show em all growing tomaters though

Nice! That would seem to be a better light than the hlg board as itís cheaper and dimmable. The chips are identical according to Samsung.

also note the light has been "Constructed on a uni-body aluminum board and IP-65 rated for grow environments with higher humidity and heat."

not plastic!!!
