    Your driftwood is very artistic and beautiful! And I have to say...that set up for indoors is lovely. I'm tempted to put a couple in the front living room. It would be a great place for my phals and oncidiums that aren't fond of the heat here in the summer. Thanks for sharing!

    wow! missed this one. There is just nothing finer to show off and even promote home cultivation orchids. I think first prize for care approach, aesthetic value and interior design. A slice of the amazon. Your final result and cathys excellent vanda root masses would complete my display, atleast for a while anyway. There is a sp. of aquatic moss that can easily thrive in a semi aq situ - java moss and bonsai specialism market a moss spores 'seed' packet - kyoto moss spores which eventually become cushion or pillow moss. This time next year the old concept of aging with beauty fits well.
