    Did I read right, you are repotting your dendrochilum wenzelii into semi hydroponics? I bought one in Feb. and I am thinking of doing mine. I have just started to replant some of my other orchids into semi hydroponics. Thanks

      Hi! My experiment into semi-hydro did not work with dendrochilum wenzelii. I eventually lost the plant. I may have had more to do with the lack of light in the room where I placed it. Good luck on yours.
