Good idea Dusty. I copied the "heart" of it and made it a sticky, and closed the thread to comments. Now it's there, plus no need to wade through two pages of silliness awaiting the results.

But I like a bit of silliness!

Seriously, now that I have gone through the subject a bit, I have a question for Ray.
Considering the recent discussion of sarcochilus Cecelia, would SH be an appropriate method for this and similar lithophytes? If so, would a media with less wicking be better than one with more?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Once again, I'll state that what works great for one might not work at all for another.

I have a couple of sarco hybrids in S/H, and they seem to be doing OK, considering the temperature, but I'd hardly say I'm well-enough versed in their care to make a judgement call.
