Just as we can be sunburned from being exposed to too much sunlight, be it intensity or length of time exposed, so can the leaves of orchids.   Preventing "burn" is optimal, however there are a number of simple steps that can be enacted to prevent  this burn.  If your leaves do suffer burn, react accordingly, but there is no need to remove the burned leaf.  The orchid will do that eventually.  This section will detail levels of light optimum for a variety of orchids as well as a simple test to determine if your orchid is getting too much or too little light for optimum photosynthesis to take place.


This topic will be the feature of the August 2017 Napa Valley Orchid Society's Newsletter.
