    This is a stupid idea, But i cant get it out of my head!
    I bought a rossete succulent the other day, only to find it was infested with spiders and alge. In a last ditch attemt to save it, I removed all the soil and replaced it with fresh catus soil. But the look of that plant woth no soil on its roots, I thought it would be so cool if you could grow a succulent (or any plants) with out the growing medium. Just let the roots hang through a hole or somthing. And mabye mist the once in a while, and spray them with a special fertilizer once in a while.

    I cant belive im posting this [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_o_32.gif[/img] but i cant get it out of my head! Im sure its not possible....is it?

    Hey, I just received a pot of aphid-infested cobra lilys, as a salvage project. I buy up the H.D CP rejects at a fraction of the price, just to bring 'em back. St. Jude is my hero![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    You should see some of my crazy ventures!

    Well I know about hydroponics but dont you have to keep the roots bmerged in water and little clay balls? I ment more freestanding, like an "air plant"

    There is a method of hydroponics as you describe. It involves periodic spraying with a fine mist, and mist with nutrient solution. My father is setting up a similar system. I'll ask him about it, but in the meantime, do a Google search as previously described, and I'm sure you'll find something.

    I found something. It's actually called aeroponics, and it's exactly as you described!

    Just do a search for his user name. Every other post by him is some crazy venture. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    No problem Scott. You know I should probably call you Jim since everyone on here does.

    hydroponics actually covers lots of ground but i have seen setups like what you discribe. generally they are done on large scale though as they can be a royal pain to setup for just a few plants. the method with clay balls is the, i guess would be the standard household type method of hydroponics used
