    I'm growing a deroose alata in a "deep water" hydroponic system. The media is hydroton, a denser clay pellet. Good so far!

    I have been thinking about thrying to grow Neps semi hydroponically in pellets, just like they grow orchids. The bottom 1/4- 1" of pellets sits in water and the capillary action allows the media to hold water without decreasing the amout of air that can get to the roots.

    Nice - I've been thinking about this for a while too, elgecko. Hydroton seems to be cheaper and more readily available around here than ceramic chips.

    I thought I remembered someone talking about that a while ago. You should start a thread about it, cp-connection. I'd be really interested in seeing your setup.

    cool, CP! I think if it worked long term, it would have the same advantage as it does for orchids- less watering, but lots of air to the root system!

    Great looking orchid plants here.Those pictures are nice but do not say the real story.It do not define which way they are grown hydroponically or in the clay. I think they are grown in the same old traditional style.
    grow tent and be healthy
