Curious what other indoor growers have experienced regarding cattleyas being inhibited from blooming by indoor home lights after sunset. I have a bunch (mostly floofly white bow bells-type hybrids) on a bright south-facing window in my living room, where I tend to stay up late reading/watching TV. Lots of big, healthy green sheaths, but so far no buds. I have a few in an east-facing spare room that I almost never go into, and some of those are pushing up buds. It's anecdotal, but I find it surprising that normal house lights would be able to throw off the bloom cycle. I'm wondering if I should move some to the back room for a few weeks to try to force budding. Anyone else have experience with this?
