I just had a friend tell me that Zeer Pots are used throughout Europe for Cypridiums and that I might consider this method for Masdie's! Honestly, I love these, Draculas (yes Marni, I contacted you a while ago out of the blue before this forum about your Vampira 'cuz I'm in love with them, lol...) and Pleuro's!!!! Could this be the solution to keeping the root zone cool and moist and successfully growing these in Missouri?! Of course, any that bloom from below would be excluded. Please give me your thoughts and opinions on this. I've never considered an evaporative cooling system before!
