LED/CFL lights for Cattleyas Male
Default How can I delete this

I made a detailed thread asking for suggestions on models of LED lights, but soon after I made it I found exactly what I was looking for. I do not know how to delete this thread, but I will continue looking for a way.

Beth: here it is LED Grow Lights MR-16 presented by Orchids Limited if you have a better alternative than I'd love to hear what you have to say but for what I need this is the best I could find
Estacion: thank you, I will definitely keep that in mind for the future

I have been experimenting with par 38 white led bulbs. I have used 2300-5000k with good results so far. I can't say for certain if these are the end all be all of lights because I haven't used them for long. I will say these are intense enough to burn cattleya and oncidium leaves at close diatances. I have gotten buds on my mimicats and blooms on my phal. so far so good.

Here is a pic for your reference.
