I did consider that but baulked at the idea so settled for an inverted net pot in the bottom instead which seems to be working ok for the three hybrids I have!What you do is buy clay pots and drill holes or slots in them. Ain't hard. If you break one
now and then, you've got pottery shards for drainage.
I think you had good culture the whole time!Sorry but it went to orchid heaven soon afterwards!
Hopefully this episode has improved my culture and there won’t be any more deaths due to poor culture,
