are you willing to experiment? i have moved about a 1/4 of my phals into s/h. they are doing swimingly (excuse the pun). some immediately (like in days) grew new leaves or roots, others took a bit longer. there's always a chance you may lose it. since i've started experimenting with s/h i have lost two plants but they were little weaklings. let me know what happens. i'm less nervous now about plunking a plant down into s/h now because i've had great results, its easier for me to grow, and downright excititng to see the roots grow before your eyes!!! Good luck!!!
