    Well I took the plunge and have got two neo. Falcata plants ( different varietys) and well I it must be me but I really cannot get this to work for me LOL for the moment they are back in their pots surrounded by sphag, waiting for me to come up with a better idea my moss strands didnt seem that long and I really couldnt cover the roots the moss just kept on falling off, I now have a forest green kitchen LOL

    Carrie one does need to get good quality, long-stranded moss...New Zealand Sphag is the best, IMHO

    This was just garden centre hanging basket sphag which might be why I am having issues. I think I will get a couple of clay pots and try mounting them on those. they look very healthy plants and are larger than I expected also.

    Maybe you should have couple bottles for each plant I think... just in case... Then you will succeed for sure. LOL
    That is why I got compot... with about 10 plants in it...

    Ron advised February is the best for cold beer..ummmmmmmm repotting time... Neo babies are still too little and won't be ready for August, but if they hurry up a bit there might be couple deserving their own pot in November?! Where in Florida you are coming?
