Hi, I live in Richmond, VA and grow under lights Oct-April, then move my orchids outside under shade cloth. Is this an orchid that I would have success with? Summer temps are in the 90's and it's very humid. Inside under lights the temps are in the 60's-70's with at least 40% humidity. Thanks!

Hi, and thanks for the question. I am in Brazil right now, by chance I had access to my email. But trying to answer your question, it depends on a few things, the most important being: do you grow other rupicolous orchids under these conditions? If so, Laelia bradei is one of the easiest to grow so you should not have any problems... but even if you don't grow others of the same group the conditions you listed seem ok to me. When inside, if you can put the plant (or any other rupicolous laelias) on the cooler section (around 60) they will do better; even 70 is ok but the plant might hesitate to bloom as they need the cooler temps to mature the growths. Hope that helps.
