    No offense Ray but, hydroponics are the biggest hoax in my opinion I ever came across. People who do it right have something up their sleeve that they don't share. Now, I know the next thing the hydro-practitioners might think is that I didn't do it right. I even got an RO water system to aid the process but the media kept rotting the roots. Pot with two holes an inch above, with clay pellets washed 10 times (not exaggerating) soaked overnight and put the orchid in there with healthy roots. I waited and waited to see the roots go dry and not a sign of new growth. Did everything by the book. Not for me sorry, just the mentioning of the word semi/hydroponics drives me up the walls.
