I love to visit nurseries here in Utah during the winter when there is nothing to do or see outside. I've taken some pictures I would like to share. I am not an experienced orchid grower but have had success with Phalanopsis which I know are easy. Perhaps these are common and not exciting to those of you who are real fanciers but I find them pretty so here they are.....

I agree ..Phals are very tempremental and don't respond well to change. They are also cold sensitive and a little water left in the crown can kill them on a cool evening. That said, I love the photos. You have a good variety of orchids there.

I grow my Phals in a sunny East facing window year round, water well every 6-7 days, 65 degrees at night and 70 in the day. They seem to be happy and have bloomed for several years They badly need to be repotted.
