    Default Dendrobium hancockii owners - Pot, Basket or Mount???

    The flower that was on my Dendrobium hancockii when I bought it has died and I need to repot my orchid. I enjoy the beauty of this plant as much as I enjoy the flower. I am having a hard time on deciding what I want to re-pot this orchid into. I want to maintain the bamboo thicket look and would like some suggestions from those who have knowledge of growing this orchid. I am willing to put in a pot a plastic basket or on cypress board mount. I just want to be able to maintain that thicket look, which pot, basket or mount worked best for you.
    Thanks
    Jack

    I am relatively new to this species. I vote for being mounted in treefern. I had seen quite a few in the HK flower market that were quite large in size

    I have been leaning towards mounting but hard to make a decision, never had this problem before on what to re-pot in.

    If you have a spot to hang it outdoors 24/7, I would vote for mounting.
