    Thanks for the pics. I found a post on here for water culture from Silver Scarab. It's an old post but great pics. I'm going to try it. Just search for water culture.

    Thank you,

    Thank Jessica! I didn't use lights or rooting hormone. They were all the time by the south facing window in a cup that had wet moss (not touching the moss) inside a plastic bag... That was it!

    Thanks Gabriel for sharing on how you saved your phals... I would try your method the next time one of my phals try to die on me again. hehehe! I am successful with my other orchids (neo, den., cymb., catt... etc.) except for phals... I think I've killed at least a couple dozens ... but I really do love them so I still try & buy them.

    Congratulations to you!!! Keep us updated on how well your orchids are doing after you transplant them.

    Thanks so much!! What a great idea. I am trying sphag & bag on a couple of my orchids, but never thought of the setup you have there. I'm gonna see if that way helps my patients.

    I have just had to put on one of mine into water culture. Fingers crossed.
