They need feeding very little but with the Akerns Rain Mix they can be fed more often (similar to MSU )..Not fussy about light but need slightly more than paphs. All phrags in my greenhouse are watered continually with cold tap water direct from an outside tap. I tried Paph kolokapingii on this method a couple of years ago and they developed roots over a period of time even in the wet soggy conditions. So there's more than one way to 'skin-a-cat'.

    I hope to run into a phrag in the future. If I do, it will come home with me.

I'm a little leary of plants that need a lot of water and humidity though, its dry here and our water is alkaline and full of minerals. It's not convenient for me to get any other water, unless the filter on the fridge is enough to clean it up some? I may have to just enjoy everyone else's Phrags.
    If you use a water filter(Britta filter or what they use in the USA) it should be okay for Phrags if you flush the pots thoroughly once a month with pure water with about 10% of the filtered water (the 10% will act as buffer to the ph).I would try 1 of the old favorites first like Phrag Sorcerers Apprentice.Why ? because from experience they do not seem to fussy with their requirements.

    They could loose the old roots and develop new roots suitable for hydrophonic media. keep humidity high and hope for the best
