    Unhappy

    Greetings all,

    I had a bright ideal and would like to know if anyone thinks it would work.

    I thought that it would be possible to simulate the natural conditions that many epiphytic utrics grow in by constructing a tube of chicken wire and filling it with orchid bark and LFS. The tube would sit vertically in a pot of sandy peat that would be exposed to the normal utric watering regime.

    I’d love to know if anyone doesn’t think this is worth trying (and why). Possible candidates for this treatment are alpina, endresii, or nelumbifolia.

    Peace,

    Damon

    I'm sure it would work, but I think it might be more work than is necessary. I think it would be more worthwhile to attempt to replicate seasonal temp and daylight cycles.
