    I agree!! I have about 7 now in water culture...its really fun!!! Its just that most of mine don't fit in pretty vases, so I had to use my SH containers and put tape over the holes so the water doesn't come out, LOL...

    I am growing some orchids in Western Australia as well. I'll try the water culture and see what kind of results I get.

    Miki you said you grow yours on a window sill, what direction does it face?

    Thanks,

    Shaun

    I have 3 phals that I'm going to put to water culture. 1 lost all its leaves through top rot. 1 has only 2 leaves with the top one missing and the other one was just a sorry individual. Until I read these posts, I didnt know too much about water culture so they were in water 24 hrs then left to dry 5 days. Didnt really expect much, but all 3 are showing new root stubs. So now I will put them in water and leave them and see how we go. Will try and post photo as they are now. Thanks for all the info peoples. Most appreciated.
