    Default Ascocentrum ampullaceum in Semi Hydro

    I just received an ascocentrum ampullaceum and while learning how to care for it I realized it might be a good candidate for S/H culture. I have not tried S/H yet and grow primarily under T-5 fluorescent lights. Has any one tried
    ascocentrum in S/H culture? If so, how should I proceed?

    I don't know if I've heard of an asco. in S/H. I will bump your post up for you... I'm guessing the s/h folks will say try it. If it's a plant you don't want to lose, what I do is buy more than one of the same plant...or divide if it's large enough (obviously not possible with an ascocentrum) and put each in a different culture. With the smaller vandas though i'm guessing the vase culture thing might work for you too.
