Monthly Meeting - Artificial Lighting

Our speaker for April will be Kelly McCracken, owner of High Desert Orchids located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Many growers have discovered the opportunities that the recent drop in price and increase in availability of LED lights has provided. But there is relatively little information about how much artificial light orchids need and what kinds of lights are best. This talk will go over the unique HDO grow space, which is entirely under LED lights, how we set it up, the lights we use, and some tips we have discovered while growing a commercial sized grow space all under artificial light. The talk will answer questions such as 

  • How much light?
  • What kind of light?
  • What spectrum of light? 

Please have your plants on the show table by 11 a.m.


Lunch is potluck so please consider bringing a dish to share.
