    @ Bruce : maybe you can merge this last post with the article ? Thank you.

    Step by step with a saucer "ready to use" :

    All you need, very simple, almost nothing ! NZ AAA sphagnum is the best, you know that.









    And here it is

    Ok, that looks almost too easy. And the phals in the background look like they were recently shined!!

    Thanks but I never wash my orchid or very exceptionally. These shining leaves are new ones.

    I was hoping that you would say that. You do a wonderful job of growing and your plants show it. Thanks for the tips, the tutorial, and the beautiful inspiring photos.

    The miniatures especially look so great! I love your Leptotes on the saucer. I was thinking about doing something similar with a couple mini phals, basically doing a moss mound like people sometimes use for Neofinetias, but I wasn't sure what I could put it on. Do you do any horizontal or are they all hanging?
