So happy to read all the interested responses! How encouraging. I love First Rays and has been my "bible" for s/h info. I also like this site
Lots of pictures and good info.
I have about 20 switched over to s/h now and so far, I love it! I too am a severe under-waterer most of the time, but have lost a fair share to root rot due to too much pampering or not realized the bark was too wet. The S/H just seems so much easier. It is my understanding that a cache pot is just the ticket for displaying a blooming s/h plant. I agree - remove to water it though. Ray recommends the Prime Agra. His rates are excellent if, like me, you don't have a supplier near by. Anyone tried cymbidiums in s/h? Thanks for all the replies. Ray has a forum on his site also with many good questions and answers. I do like the versatility of this site though and hope to be in the plant drawing!
