Hi Dexter thanks yep Paphiopedilum can be a bit tricky as they require good amount of light to make some of them bloom more light than is needed to grow alot of them depending on the variety.

Hii mobile sort of. Because of the cold winters here in the UK I grow my orchids inside an old garage. I setup & built a large grow room inside the garage with extra insulation for the winter months. I use LED lighting as a light source as it is way more efficient to run than normal lighting at only 6w per bulb. I also have an indoor led setup where i grow my young carnivorous plants as well. It has been experimental but i'm having good results so far :)

Here is my Carnivorous Plant Indoor Setup :)
