Phal propagation using peat

Found this link online today and was wondering if any of you all have tried this successfully. Link: http://www.orchideenvermehrung.at/english/index.htm

When you go to the link go to the left navigation and click "Node Culture" then "In Soil."

I have heard of stem propagation before (using agar). I am not 100% sure, but I think Peter Linn clones Phals this way.

I'm pretty sold on the agar prep. It's the peat that really interests me. Per the instructions:

Procedure:

soak the peat pellets in tap water
put the expanded pellets into a plastic container, fill the space between the pellets with silica sand and pour some tap water + coconut water into the plastic container
put the plastic container into the microwave oven (we didnīt get any informations about time and intensity)
put some moss into the sand (when itīs cold)
cut the flower stalk about 2 cm above and below the node
remove the covering bracts
put the nodes into the pellets
cover the plastic pot with plastic foil and put the container under plant light

No sterilization, no agar, just peat and water and coconut water.

Sounds like an interesting DIY project.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained!
Give it a try. At most, you lose a flower stem and some materials.
