My new venture for this year is orchids. Started with a kmart rescue a couple of months ago and now have 6--oppps, off topic LOL
Anyhow, in researching care, I came across S/H growing for orchids (semi hydroponics). It made me think that a nepth may be a canidate for this type of growing since they like to be kept moist but not standing in water. The medium used is the clay baked pellets, in a tall plastic container, two holes drilled about 2 inches from the bottom. Watering from the top, all excess water flows out the holes, leaving just the couple of inches at the bottom which is wicked up by the medium as needed. Supposedly watering only needs to be once a week and its impossible to overwater, my kind of care LOL
I have a nepth that I am considering trying as an experiment, its a Lowes Noid and has been harden off all summer outside. Its alive, but won't say it grew at all. Anyhow, I want to windowsill this plant this winter instead of in a terrium and thought this might be a good way to try.
Anyone with thoughts? Hope I made my post clear. Some of you orchid growers may understand what I'm saying.
