Water it just like an orchid in a hanging basket, drench and then wait till it needs it again. That is basically how I grow mine now anyways.

Not with U. alpina or any of the other Orchidioides and Iperua you would not, these guys would rot out in a heart beat if you tried to float them in water perpetually.

I have a batch of alpina seedlings that I am going to try moving into the mesh bag set up. I also have an established 'Jitka' that I think I am going to transfer over and see how it does. Maybe in a few months I'll have an update.
