    Great job and Bravo! Brilliant idea and you have inspired me and more will agree im sure. Theres always something unique that a grower brings to their collection. Coincidentally we have stacks of lemon brulee dishes/saucers buliding up at work so have a good source. Very similar if not identical to yours.

    I;m going to present this idea in my next orchid meeting. It,s going to be called "The Eric Method" of planting orchids. I have set aside a few genera to experiment.

    Thank you very much, Jose. I'll be famous in Puerto Rico !

    And, thank you all. It was a pleasure for me to show you the "Eric Method".

    Really gorgeous! Are there any advantages of this method over mounting on bark, that is, do the plants grow better this way?

    Not that I have used this method for long, but unless you break the saucer, you wouldn't have to worry about the mount rotting away.
