Hi from Dubai, UAE Male
Default Hi from Dubai, UAE

Hi Everyone,

I used to be a huge orchid fan back in Hungary years ago, but it kinda faded away with my busy work life, then 8 years ago I relocated to Dubai. Few months ago I got back into the hobby again. Currently having few orchids as a start.

Phalaenopsis hybrid (currently in bloom)
Phalaenopsis cornu-cervi var. Chattaladae
Paphilopedium madieau green
Paphilopedium American hybrid
Vanda Kultana Gold x Dr. Anek
Bulbophyllum lepidum
Aspasia silvana
Cattleya NoID
Masdevallia bellavallia
Zygopetalum (currently in bloom)
Dendrobium Phalaenopsis (rescue from a friend, who's been neglecting her)
Promaneae xanthina (rescue, had no leaves, but started sprouting since its here)


Currently in keeping most of them outside as the temperatures during the day is around 25-27 C (75-80 F) , at night it goes down to 16-18 (60-65 F) with humidity around 40-60% most of the time.
Do you think these conditions are OK for these orchids?

Indoors the temperature is around 24 both day and night all year around, but inside the bedroom with AC on at night it's around 20 with humidity around 40-60%.

During summer I'm planning to take them indoors, as temperatures can get up to 35-45 C (110-120F) with 80-90% humidity.

Welcome to the board

I thought Dubai was a dry place...
Considering Phals, Catts and Zygos I think those conditions (the actual, not in summer) are ok.
The other ones Ican't really say as I don't grow them.

Hiya!
I'm surprised to hear that the humidity is so high there in the summer - I thought you were more desert, like us in Dubai.

We are by the sea and yet the humidity is still next to nothing.

Nice to come back full circle to something you love.
