Are there ways to disinfect water in a closed-loop system?

Could you bubble ozone through it, or would that harm the plants?

My best success with phals has been in precision orchiata, and except for cattleyas, I pot all the orchids whose survival I'm invested in, in that.

I have two mini phals in moss and they also do...

I have indoor temps about the same as you, and yeah I use a heat mat. The phals not on a heat mat tend to do nothing all winter.

Depends on the plant? I grow phals with sphagnum in clay pots, here in central Canada. I water like normal, albeit much less often. I wouldn't try it with cattleyas, though.

backbulb divisions of coelogyne

I have a coelgyne with a lot of old backbulbs, probably around 6, they're a bit shrivled though.

If I take the back three off, will they produce a new growth? will it harm the main lead?

I don't think cool enough would be a problem in PA though. A tarp covering the container should be enough to keep them dry. I'd like to try them here in Ontario, but I can't find anyone who has them...

Hanging mounts with copper wire?

I've been using copper wire to hang cork and pots in my vivarium. Copper compounds can be harmful to plants, but is there any danger in using metallic copper for this purpose?

Ljubljana is probably a bit too cold in the winter for Neofinetia to thrive outdoors, you could give it a try though. It seems you get frost 90 days a year, on average, which is far too often.

I would, or at least dislodge it, so they don't get a fungal infection from the lack of air movement.

Also, Tacca integrifolia is not an orchid, it's a member of the Taro family.

Sophronitis like it pretty bright. Peter T. Lin's article has records of them flourishing in full sun.

Of course, what "full sun" entails will depend on where you are located.

She certainly has many plants, but I'm not confident that they are well grown.
