    Idle curiousity at work here. I don't use it as any orchid I've tried w/ s/h has died, but I do know folks who just love it.

    I tried 6 phals, 4 catts and 2 dens on s/h last year. I lost 2 phals because of that, and moved 3 of the catts and the rest of the phals out of it, still leaving 1 catt and 2 dens in it. The ones still in s/h are doing good, the ones I moved out earlier are recovering pretty good also. But I am trying to put my oncis in it now, since I can't seem to provide the humidity they need in this hot weather, it will be the first time I try oncis on s/h.

    I'm trying oncs and phrags and paphs in those pot-in-pot with a gauge s/h setups with primeagra. It's only been a couple of months, so the verdict's not in yet.

    Most are doing really well.

    Just started to play with s/h. I have 2 paph compots, 4 paphs, 1 phrag, 4 catts, 1 zygo and 1 epidendrum. Soon to have 1 or 2 phal compots, a couple of b/s phals and a cymbidium going into it.

    So far everyone seems happy.

    I am using Ray's method from his site about S/H.......can I say that?

    There is really no need to PM the link since it is in our LINKS thread under Semi-Hydroponics. Any member wishing to view it can go there.

    Not any more. He may sponsor YOU, elsewhere. Not us.

    Hi all,

    I have 4 plants in s/h (of ~100 in total): a phal, a reed-stem epidendrum, a restrepia and a gongora. So far, none have died--indeed, the gongora was nearly dead when I put it into s/h and is now growing. I'm not intending to give a ringing endorsement of s/h with this post because I just don't feel I have enough experience with it yet. My suggestion to anyone wishing to try it would be to put a plant you have a duplicate of into s/h. That way, if you lose the one in s/h, you have a "back-up". Actually, I guess I'd say never to switch *all* your plants into any new medium, no matter how much rave reviews it receives.

    The two Lc.'s I've got in S/H are doing great. One has three new growths that are doing well, and both have tons of new roots
