Light question for Oncidium Female
Default Light question for Oncidium

I have a Degarmoara Shibumi that I keep in med/high light, but never direct sun. Mid 70's during the day and low 60's at night. Due to the light, there are tinges of purplish red appearing on the leaves and bulbs, but it doesn't seem to be negatively affecting it's growth. I've attached some photos. Do you think this is a sign of too much light or will it be OK? I think this hybrid has a lot of miltonia and some brassia in it.

I must have flowers, always and always. Claude Monet
