No problem, thanks again for the nudge
Oh yeah it did seem more humid around his plants because he has them strung up all over the place in his yard, which isn't too big (it's overrun by neps and tortoises ) so it keeps the moisture in. I got to his place around 11:30 in the morning and stayed til about 2 in the afternoon, and his plants were still sorta wet from the morning hosing-over.
He says he hoses over them to spray them down once a day just enough to get the leaves and top of the pots moist...you can see that in some of the shots that have the top of potting mix in them that he has some nice moss growing like this one:
He says his mix is a peat/pumice sandwich with lfs on top and bottom of the pot. It seems to me that it's more like peaty-lfs with a handful of pumice thrown in...I get the feeling that his plants are actually just growing in straight-up grass roots XD. It probably helps to shade them a little too actually...and with all the field reports of the new thai species all growing in mounds of grass, it's probably the preferred habitat of a lot of them. His maintanence to his own admission is a lack-there-of (all the grass ), kind of a trial by fire: if it survives outside under his care, it stays. If it doesn't well...then he doesn't have that plant.
Oh, and I'm kinda sad that I didn't get a pic of his whole yard because I'm sure that'd help you, but maybe next time ...
