Good morning members, my question about flowers in bloom has to do with moving them. I've always been reluctant to move my flowers after they bloom. I grow them in my sun room with changing day and night temperatures, but after they do flower I would like to admire them in my air conditioned living room. Will moving them cause them to die faster or will they live as long as the particular flower lives in either place? I have found that Phalaenopsis and it seems some Oncidiums, do well when I move them to my living room. So could members give me some advice as to which orchid family types can be moved and which shouldn't be moved? Thank you, Zoren...

Most will do ok. Some will not be fine with this. Many of the commonly grown orchids will not skip a beat unless conditions are too arid or if the temperatures are too drastically different.

Some of the miniatures such as those in the genus Lepanthes, will have flowers that will most definitely suffer.

I'm assuming you are really interested in the more commonly grown ones, so, in your case, you probably don't have to worry about this issue much.

Thank you for your comments, I have a number of different types of Orchids yes I have a number of the more commonly grown. I also have Catasetum, Cycnoches, Catteleya (alliance), Paphiopedilum, Psychopsis, Phalaenopsis (species) and Phragmipedium. Would you classify these as commonly grown types? But, I do like the more challenging and fragrant type if possible...Zoren....

Great collection! Those should be fine moving to where you can enjoy them while blooming. A prolonged period in deep shade won't be the greatest for the high-light plants, though.

When plants are in bloom, I usually move them into the house where I can enjoy them for more hours than when they are outside and I have to go and "visit" them. (Some, of course, don't fit...) I even have some hooks hanging from the light fixture in the kitchen where I can hand some of the smaller mounted plants. There are a few "picky" ones that I don't move into the house, based on experience, for instance the Draculas tend to close up in the warmth of the house, and don't like the lower humidity. So the plant tells ME... the ones that don't like it don't move, but most are fine.
