Orchidsarefun, that brings up something else I've been thinking about lately. For most of us, growing our orchids indoors, near a window, means that most of the light is going to come from one or maybe two sides. When I think about that, it seems quite unnatural, and I can understand why the plants are not always at their best. I guess that's why many of us routinely turn our plants, to allow all sides to get the same amount of light over time.

I read somewhere recently -- I can't remember where -- that side light is not as good for our plants as top light. Some of us solve that problem by using supplemental overhead lighting. But if we're not in a position to be able to do that, are we just doomed to have unhappy plants?

Hmm, I think that's going to be the topic of another new thread soon.

No, you must be thinking of someone else. Mine are all on a large-ish kitchen table in front of a south-facing window. Good thing we don't use the table much for eating.
