Bulbo pardolatum

my Bulbo pardolatum is trying to bloom, flower will not fully open, about 3/4. I understand they close during the night. Grown in doors under lights, 14-16 hours of light, 15 watts ful spectrum LEDs, 90-95% humidity, temperature range 60-75 degrees. What am I doing wrong?

Doesn't sound to me like you are doing anything wrong. Sometimes maybe they don't open all the way like they should. Some plants can be fickle.

Do you have a photo?

Well the second blossom has come in, I thought they closed during the night, wrong, this one closes during day, turn my lights one and it closes. on the opening further it does not, was not until i took pictures with phone i got the same results as pictures on the net. I must learn to post pictures as the colors are bright and vibrant.

Looking forward to seeing your photos, I am surprised they close during the day.

I to am surprised. I would have thought that they would be open during daylight hours. I have no experience as this is the first one I've bloomed out, one of the joys of orchids, new experiences to keep me collecting, excitement of a new flower.
