I love the way they look in the glass containers. It must be a real pain when they need to change the water.

I could see a phrag adapting & doing well but a phal? One can't argue with the roots on that plant, I would think they'd rot!

haha. sometimes i wished i lived somewhere it was slightly more humid, i would be able to grow so much more. even out west into BC would be great. just got home from there and the humidity is always 70%+ and it felt so nice.

im thinking about the issue of air too... and apparently they are doing this to epiphytes... hmmm

No need to be ashamed. Last time I was in Canada some french canadien chicklets wouldn't give my friends from the Maritimes the time of day.

I bet that if you were to put an air stone in that water than the plants would be even happier, especially the phrag.

I believe this is much the same culture that Rod Venger used to tout many years ago.Gradually formed alot of algae but wasn't harmful to plant.

I think I'll stick with S/H. :) Roots look like they are growing "okay" in water but S/H generally grows them way better.
