Hello, my friends

My name is Rui and I live in suny Portugal. 8-)
I have been always a passionate orchid lover since I was a kid but started to grow them more seriously 4 years ago.
Not an expert but I've been trying several genus. So I have a few right now: 4 Phals, 1 Catt, 1 Zygo, 1 Bletilla, 1 Mtssa, 1 Pahp, 1 Stan, 1 Den, 1 Xyl, 1 Onc and finally 11 Cymbs.
I am posting also in a North American forum but, while I get great info there, it poses a few problems since I can only get "on spot" growing advise from Californian members. I hope here I can find users with general climatic conditions more similar to mine.
I grow outside and on windowsills, my windows are faced North and South so I have available both extremes in temp and light.

Rui

Hello Rui and welcome to the forum. Hopefully we can help you out here with knowledge based on conditions closer to the ones you have in Portugal.
