Where were they inside? Was it like a patio or fully climate controlled indoors?

I would maybe hang a white sheet or (better) some shade cloth for a while so they can have a more drawn out adjustment period.

Yeap! For the less light needed orchids Temp control for sure was optima, but light was poor. About 3-4 natural light (window light) and then 8 -10 hours with 35-40 W leds. See example of pic below...

I have more orchids than those on the picture; some inside the house for decoration in windowsills, I also have like a cooler growing room for the Masdevallia and I also have the terrarium :blushing:

I totally agreed more shade is need it because temperatures have went up lately and it's too hot now even if the sun is partially covered.

DC's advice is spot-on... watch what is going on and act accordingly. If you need to water, water thoroughly so it runs through the pot.

As for the water, excuse me and allow me to correct the expression from mist to pressure irrigation, that goes directly in the upper layer of the substrate, this is beside the regular deep watering and fertilization. I don't usually mist the leaves, at least not on purpose, it happens from time to time by accident. So I think we are aligned on that. Let's see how it progresses for a couple of days ;). However, It will be nice to understand your automatic irrigation and your best practice in this regard.


Thank you guys ...as always fantastic points of view and experiences.

Leaves can get wet….but…. Ha ha ha

So they can be wet in bright sun (it’s usually cloudy when it rains) and they shouldn’t be wet at night ( it gets colder and they can rot)

I would get the timer set ( assuming you only have one timer zone) for full soak just before dawn. Then it can soak a bit before the heat dries it but it is all dry before there is a long time before bright sun or cool night.


If that were MY terrace I would hang Roman shades and leave them down for a few days (and then Enjoy them for adding shade and, perhaps, privacy!)

Got it!!!! ;) I will cover the roof with thicker shade and program the irrigation with a fuller soak.

DC, BTW, from the moment we star sharing setups and throwing millions of questions; this is like YOUR terrace as well. I like the roman garden curtains idea, maybe not white cuz we get Sahara Desert Rain (rain that comes with a lot of mud and stains a lot).. but let see what I could get.

Thanks

I can't think what... that glass of wine certainly belongs. What a beautiful, peaceful space!

Something missing maybe, the bottle of wine!
Sitting in that lovely space would take all afternoon and most of the evening, once glass just wouldn't do.

The bottle was hidden 🤪 .... I didn't want y'all to think that I have so many addictions (orchids, wine,...hahaha)

Looks like a magazine cover. :bowing: And that terrarium... WOW!

Obviously two things missing. My glass of red, and the tapas.

Oh Sade, the wildlife fotos on the wall are magnificent! I have such fotos in frames on my walls taken from magazines. Wish they had come from traveling to exotic places tho. A fabulous montage of well grown plants being overseen by curious eyes. Love it all!
