    Very nice. I love the deep, velvet green of the leaves. What is that medium in which you are growing them?

    Cheers,

    I agree and am curious about this too, it doesn't quite look like rockwool cubes.

    (oh and I love the tiles on the last pictures )

    Bruce, the medium I used is "flower foam" the florist always used to continue water supply to the flower temporarily, well not all orchids are suitable with this media. Thanks, Laurent for your kind words.

    I wonder how fast it breaks down as a medium. Does it change ph over time? It seems like it would be a good medium for moisture loving plants, but what are the down sides?

    As far as I am concern I already used more than one year still in a good condition except its will attract algae , fern to germinate faster and need regular check up and cleaning.

    I believe the pH would change from time to time but offset by regular watering.

    The disadvantages are:
    1. really very light when dry and easily topple by wind ( plastic pot).
    2. good medium for algae and fern to germinate
    3. not suitable for all orchids esp, phal.
    Hope this one will answer your question.
