    Did it get some new growth on it? The one I have looks like it is going to be a feequent bloomer. I cut off an old spike, it has 2 spikes in bud now, and there are about 3 new growth too. I hope your multiplies good also.

    Traci, I didn't see this post for a while. The s/h thing still perplexes me a bit but I am a very classic overwaterer so I think it is good for me. I can't properly explain it but the ceramic pellets retain water so that the roots stay moist and not wet. At the bottom is a resevoir of water with holes in the pot about 1 inch up. So water stays in the resevoir until it evaporates. I have seen some pictures of orchids in s/h for a year or more and their roots are amazing. Plus, supposedly, you can't overwater it. check out www.firstrays.com for a thorough explanation.

    Louis did a picture guide to S/H. I think it is with the flasking threads. I am a visual person, so reading someone explain it made no sense to me.

    Ha, you are just like me, I need to see a diagram. I'm ADHD so after the first few words all I see is Blah blah blah. I'll have to look for that thread, thanks Jen.

    I am the same way - never diagnosed, but definitely a visual learner...one reason I enjoyed working in education. Very attuned to the multiple disciplines because of that background...Not creative enough but still learned a lot about personality differences.
