What kind of light do you grow your phrags in? Do the besseae species and hybrids require less light? More/less light than paphs?
Any help would be appreciated!!!

Welcome to Slippertalk, Wamboozi! I'd like to move your thread to Slipper Orchid Culture, where it will probably get more exposure. Also, I think you mean phrags? It's that auto-correct, it wanted to "correct" my word also!

Welcome from NYC. More or less light than what Paphs? Paphs are very variable regarding lighting for different species.

Welcome to ST from KY. I provide higher light for my
Phrags. and just a bit lower for Paphs. depending on
which Paphs. are placed where. I don't grow multis which
need higher light generally.

Thanks everyone!
So maybe some clarification..... Here are some of the plants I grow and maybe some of you could provide some specific comments regarding light. :)
Phrag caudatum
Besseae
Paph sanderianum
Paph venustum
Paph godefroyae
Malipoense
Lots of parvi hybrids
Paph venustum
Some maudiae hybrids as well.
I grow I an eastern/northern window corner of the house and they get some direct light around 9-10 am. They get led light the rest of the day.
I wonder if some of my guys are getting a little too much light.
any advice would be appreciated !

no hatred!!
I've found that some of your plants like super bright while others of the same species do not.... start out putting all of them in the same spot feeding them the same, the plants that turn dark need brighter light

Phrag caudatum - can take more light
Besseae - a lower light Phrag -- your conditions sound good
Paph sanderianum - should be OK
Paph venustum - should be OK
Paph godefroyae - should be OK
Malipoense - should be OK
Lots of parve hybrids - should be OK
Paph venustum - should be OK
Some maudiae hybrids as well. - also should be OK
