    I am ordering some semi-hudro orchid pots and medium and giving it a try with a cutting of something. and see how it does. It is a fecinating concept and one I have been asking about for a lil while now. Just too cheep to try it if it has been tried before. Way to go.

    Do you ever top water or do you always just fill the tray? Plants look great by the way.

    I just fill the trays. Top watering isn't necessary when using the tray method. Come to think of it, I don't top water any of my CP's.. ever.

    Glad you mentioned this. I actually use 50:50 peat/perlite for cuttings. Seems the extra moisture levels helps the cutting produce root systems faster. Once it's rooted and growing, I switch it over to the appropriate media.

    I have used Mass' method since I started in feb of this year. ( he's a great tipper Ya know)
    I have gotten at least 20 Nep's in that time, all put into the tray . The results are immediate growth, no acclimation needed as they are surrounded by humidity and plenty of water for uptake to recover from shipping.
    I have most recently taken to top watering with maxsea once a month, allowing the runoff to go down the drain.

    Yeah I am a firm believer in flushing everything with copious amounts of water. It just makes for better medium and less salt buildup.
