With this being my first post I would first off like to say thanks for welcoming me into the community
Now onto the topic, I have found very little regarding Disa culture in S/H but what I have found claims them to be difficult due to their specific low PH needs but feel they should be perfect candidates for thr method itself.
Being from Cape Town, I have a keen interest in the Disa genus as there are species all over my local mountains (though NONE of my plants are wild collected)
I plan to take six Disa seedlings (3 Helmut Meyer 'Yellow' and 3 uniflora) and place one of each into the standard spag and perlite mix I use on Disa (as a control), then one of each will go into S/H and be watered with the same PH neutral water all the other plants get, then lastly I plan to place one of each into S/H but water them only with water that has had a bag of acidic peat soaking in it for a week (bit of effort to keep a constant supply of peat water but I feel it will be worth it)
I have chosen both a Hybrid and a species for this experiment.
I will post pictures in a few day when I do the transfer of the seedlings and if all goes well I will post updates of my success.
I would love to hear any other members thoughts on this.
Most plants will, but if you have a specific question, post it here.
