It is important when using S/H for Paphs to avoid movement that will cause the hydro pellets to rub against the roots.

Too much movement will damage the little hair roots that feed the plant.

When I was experimenting with what led to semi-hydroponic culture, paphs were the first plants tried. They grew so well that I expanded the trials to others.
