    We water our Paph sangii every other day with no damage to the roots. It is important to flush the pot thoroughly to bring air down to the roots every time you water. This will also wash away any excess salts and decaying organic material.
    Has anyone tried this species in semi-hydroponics?

    Ok, I will keep my every other day watering. I collect the rain water and use it to water the Sangii. it seems to like the rain water. I do flush the pot and try to get rid of the most water at the bottom. when I shine a flash light in the plant, I think there might be a new leave or (I hope) a spike forming.
