Is fluorescent light good for orchids?

Yes, fluorescent lights can be used as grow lights for orchids. You should use a cool white fluorescent bulb, and place your orchid about 8 to 12 inches away from the light. Make sure to turn the light off at night so your orchid can get the 10-14 hours of darkness it needs each day, and check frequently for scorch to see if conditions should be adjusted.
