Question Jewel Orchid Happy in No Light?

I was given a jewel orchid by my aunt. Initially I kept it under a grow light with my phals and oncidiums.

Oncidiums, specifically, still hate me. Continued die-off, some add'l. q's re: Phals.

I'm looking for a good way to control gnats as well as what seems to be a rotting issue on my phals, oncidiums, and dendros.

I discovered recently that many of my oncidiums were dying because I...

Amazon is now 2 days late delivering the bark for these orchids... Would it be better to dump them out of pots entirely and let the roots remain exposed to air while I continue to wait for the bark?

Dying Oncidiums? Yellowing, spotting, leaf drop, etc.

See attached pictures. All are intergeneric oncidiums as far as I know.

I let them dry out between each watering (which is why the soil is dry now). Repotted maybe 2-3 months ago into a dirt-bark...
