Growing Orchids in water….one site said soak 2/3 days then dry several, soak then dry…other site said leave in water 24/7-365 days-can you explain? Can Orchids be reported if they’ve been growing in water?

Our article says both ways work. (2 days soaking, 5 days drying or water 24/7 and changing water every 1 to 2 weeks).

You can go from hydroponic to bark mix, but success will depend on whether your orchid grows new roots for its new environment or not.
