6 x 80 watts and 45 cm distance. For the Paphies, I have added a filter between the tubes and the plants, blocking 20% of the light…
WOW!!! nice set up Ramon!!!!! I guess that the light temp is 6500k??!!! Or you have a mix?? Which is more beneficial???

I grow under 3 energy fluo lamps that are 11W=60W, with 2700K, each that caver half of one of your selves! I have one 20W=100W, with 6500K, that I rarely let on! Do you think it is good??? It is the first year, with this light... previously I had T8 light with low wattage which didn't prove so effective!!!...

...and these are the new slippers in the collection:

Paphiopedilum helenae var. delicatum
Paphiopedilum Wössner Helene (helenae x charlesworthii)
Paphiopedilum herrmannii
Phragmipedium andreettae

Finally got you Paph. helenae and its hybrids. Good for you.


well... In the meantime this is already the 4th helenae :) (the 3 others are supposed to be the standard variety), and as for the hybrids... 4th and 5th (if we considered hermannii as teh natural hybrid between helenae and hirsutisimum) ;)

Unfortunatelly, I could not find Paph. coccineum nor Phrag. Wössen at this show.. :(
