    By all means this is not the only method to grow Neof. This is the traditional Japanese method of growing them. They can be mounted. I have also seen them grown in lava rock and coir.

    Margo..I would keep them in a compot until each has reached mature size...well that size does depend on Neof. variety. Pine-needle types are much smaller than some others. Let's say about 2" width on the plant. Then they can go into individual unglazed thumb thumb pots
