I have a couple of hybrid phals, couple of encyclias, a noid den, both my phrags, and several oncid allicance all in s/h. I use the plain plastic pots with two holes drilled in the bottom available from an online vendor.
I lost one oncid, and I took my oncid. twinkle out of s/h (when I bought it, it was potted in the s/h medium but in a non s/h pot and was from a local grower, so similar -albiet greenhouse- conditions).
Most everything is happy and blooming and seem to be growing normally (not just root growth for instance). I'm excited about the phrags, they are REALLY liking it, and I hope to get some blooms from these plants this year.
Have not had the courage/time/? to try the few paphs that I have, and I'm just plain chicken to try the catts. I would like to put more of my encyclias into s/h.
Hope this helps.
