Growing Orchids Under Lights

Some orchid growers rely entirely on artificial light, while others, like me, use it to supplement lower sunlight levels in autumn and winter. No matter which category you’re in, you’ll find essential lighting info in Growing Orchids Under Lights. This American Orchid Society book focuses on practical light solutions for your home, office, or greenhouse. From fluorescents to high intensity mobile lamps, there are plenty of options to turn a basement or dark corner into an orchid oasis. This quick read also includes care basics and a chapter about orchid varieties that do well in artificial light.

    Adding lights in winter makes a big difference with my collection. So many more bloom well with my flouresence lights in winter. I keep my orchids outdoors in summer and move them inside before Oct. 1 every year. I keep them near a window and use 4 bulbs for 14 hours per day. They don’t fizzle out in winter now and keep growing all year.

    This book is the necessary Orchid Lighting 101 if you live with cold winters like I do. I used it to set up fluresents in my basement where my babies go to live from Oct – May. In the summer they are outside but I can always bring them in for bad weather etc
