    Default Hydro - style vivarium ?


    I'm considering changing my paphs and phrag kinda semi hydro. I wont put them to LECA to get enough air for root. I could water them as often as needed. This way I would get rid of overwatering problem and humus in aquarium.... What do you think? I should of course also change to hydro fertilizers, or do you think that coconut wall, kun have enough bacteria to get it work? What to you think about my idea?

    Here is a photo to explain my watering system... so, pump pumps water for plants. Water goes down the soil to the bottom. Aquarium is totally separated system.
