No problem. Unless you mind me calling you "Jen", in which case we already have a problem.
(BTW, we were talking about FAQs for breeding/hybridizing, and this is more a grower's issue. Whether this becomes a FAQ in the general forum is totally up to lja.)
Two ways of doing semi-hydro (S/H): The easy way, and the other easy way.
So first; the easy way. Take a plant which is already potted. Put it in some sort of somewhat deep little saucer or saucer-like object; maybe 1" deep. This way, when you water it, the water collects in the saucer, so it's sitting in water the whole time. Between watering, the water can wick upwards, so not only is the bottom of the pot soaked, but the top stays moist too.
Now the other easy way. Take some sort of plastic bottle. For a classy look, I recommend Gordon's Gin. Drill a hole or two about an inch up on the side. This has the same effect as the saucer above: the area below the drain holes fills with water so it's got some around between waterings.
Either way, you will do well to use extra-tall pots. This allows the plant to grow to a normal depth without having its roots dip down into the reservoir. They probably will anyway, but at least they won't start out in the drink.
So isn't this going to keep the plants really freakin' wet? You bet it will! Do orchids like this? Well, kinda. Roots adjust to their environment by producing different amounts of velamin, and presumably in other ways as well. When you stick a plant in S/H, expect it to take some time to adjust. As to whether it will do better in the long run, after the change has been made . . . well, there are varying accounts. Regardless, be sure to change your watering habits; you won't need to water as often in S/H.
Some orchids don't need to adjust much, if at all, to S/H, because they prefer to stay moist. Even if you don't use S/H for any other ones, do consider it for Phragmipedium hybrids (not species), and for Pleurothallidinae, especially Dracula.
Ah, but we must also discuss media. The most frequently used S/H medium is those expanded clay pellets which are known as Hydroton or LECA. S/H can also be done with perlite, coir, or normal organic media. The nice thing about the Hydroton and perlite is that it won't rot from sitting in water all the time, but I've got Phrag hybrids in peat sphag and bark mixes which are in S/H, and they've been ok so far. I expect to have to repot soon though. If you use fine media like perlite, coir, and/or perlite, fill the pot a little bit higher than the internal or external resevoir with Hydroton, then pot normally on top of this. This will keep the whole thing from being completely soggy, and will help to stop the finer media from being flushed out of the pot, and from clogging the drain holes.
So there you go. Let me know if you have other questions about S/H.
