    Harvey thanks for the compliment, that orchid got root rot and it was in a clay pot about two years ago, I had posted some pics on this site back then of its condition and I had treated it with fungicide and put it into a pot with a little moss, stones and coals, I hardly wet it cause I wanted it to really live, then one day I noticed a new leaf and when I looked through the side of the pot ( a clear plastic one used by the orchid dealers) I noticed one root so I left it for some weeks till I saw more root and decided to put it on that piece of tree branch, hid it in the cool so it would not get direct sun and then it started showing off more and more root, I realized that is just how they grew in the wild and love it and so that is how I have all of my orchids except the dens, my cattleya are like that too, just wanted you to see two others Name:  CIMG1273a.jpg

    That's awesome! In my climate, they'd all be crispy critters! No humidity!
