    spent half the afternoon repotting 1/2 my Orchidioides utrics and came up with this





    missing from the tank are humboldtii, reniformis, nephrophylla(because i forgot to throw it in there) and a presumed decessed nelumbifolia. present are geminiloba, two clones of alpina, asplundii(was presumed dead but discovered 4 tubers and a lollon), praetermissa, endresii, jamesoniana and alpina x endresii as well as 3 pots of H. minor(it refused to come out of its old pot in one piece) and N. aristo.

    in another tank my novae-zealandiae is blooming

    Looks good. Interesting double pot method on that jamesoniana. Let me know how it works out

    i didnt want to repot it and was worried it would get to wet so i pushed some LFS strands into the bottom of its pot and set it in a pot 1/2 full of LFS hoping wicking action will work well enough that i dont have to worry but will keep a close eye on it for the next month. all the others have a short layer of LFS followed by a layer of coconut husk chips with more LFS on top with a bit going through the coconut layer, hoping it works out similar to your method, i just dont have ideal pots to try it your way. also have holes cut in the side of the pots to increase airflow and hopefully keep things just damp. didnt bother with the coconut for the mature alpina as its seeming to like it wetter than the others. put everything in larger pots hoping that ill have better luck with the picky ones as conditions should be more stable. besides the alpina and hybrid are growing like weeds

    All you potting set-ups should work. I go a little "extreme" with my plants but there are other methods that are not as complicated and they all work fine. I know because I used most of them getting to where I am now.

    The jamesoniana is pretty robust and could probably take it without the second pot if you were so inclined. My main "do not touch under penalty of death" plant I have potted my "technical" way and it is fairly dry but my other plant (my propogator) is in a plain old 2" tall-style pot with a media of peat/sand and sits in a constant 2-3cm of water. Grows just as well as the other though it is a bit "softer". But if that way is working for you then I'd say don't bother changing it. Why fix what isn't broke??

    havent had it long enough to fix anything its been sitting in the pot in a plastic bag since it arrived but i was getting to the point of having pots in bags sitting all over (notice the alpina seedlings are still in a bag as is my lil hamata and a couple other nep cuttings) since i have a tank specifically for them the geminiloba and jamesoniana came out of their bags as did the lil aristo since it was outgrowing its bag..........havent found out how they are going to react to my basement yet

    also after careful examination of that D. falconerii i have to say i think it was tweaking out because of humidity, it loves the open tray, its kin are going nuts in the enclosed warm tank but the falconerii seems to want to be out in the harsher enviroment, go figure, i though petolaris and paradoxa were the hardy ones, not falconerii
