Day Length Comments
DAY LENGTH: Increased by Artificial Light Cattleyas may not flower with too much light, under lights and with kitchen lights on full. A86-1031Fall flowering cattleyas most respond to light; increase the day length by turning on lights for four hours from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. each night; several weeks later after lights are turned off the plants should begin to flower; start lights in mid-July to delay fall-flowering cattleyas into winter. F74-165 0
DAY LENGTH: Response of Plants Cattleya warscewiczii does not respond to day-length; if a hybrid with it in its genes, flowers in early summer and the sheath is green and fleshy, it will not respond to photoperiod control. A86-815 0
DAYS, SHORT: How Many Required to Set Cattleya Buds Sometimes as few as five days; some crippling of flowers will show if too-long days follow the bud set period. A70-798 0
