    Default First time mounting my orchids.

    As you know i'm the over watering person.so i deside to give a try for mounting,remind me when i was a child.i collected the orchid from the tree in rice field and mount it on mango tree,split them and they're doing well.

    but from that experience it still difference from the climate here.i love how beautiful display from the hanging and one more reason i don't have space in green house (i have about 45 pots of orchids now)

    here's my 6 of mounting.

    I enjoy watching roots crawl over mounts. It really is the ideal way to grow them if you have the time and humidity for it.

    I actually have crappy humidity but mounts still do well for me. Just have to water every day or every other day. And it is awesome watching the roots go crazy.
