    OK here are some of my baskets and mounts.
    The first has only been in the basket a year but notice the roots coming through the moss already.

    This is the underside of pic 1 to show the wire inserted in the bottom. You can even see roots there as well.

    Thanks Jeff... last time I was down in FL visiting my mom I picked several slat baskets for my bulbos... and with your great photos know how to transplant them in the spring. I have 6" baskets and most of my bulbos are kinda on the small side I think for this size so next time I'll get some of the smaller units. They are only about $2 .. and the 6" are about $3.50

    Excellent info! My potted bulbophyllums races to get over the side of the pot,so was looking for alternatve ways to deal with the long rhizome ones. Your mounted and hanging plants look great!!
