    Coeruleo the vandas are in their own pots. the phals are just hanging over head, they are all mounted, I hung them on metal brackets used to put up shelves with, I bent the bracket so that it could accommodate the plant and used the open top end of the brick to push the bracket into, the plants are about six inches off of the wall so they do not get damaged or burnt, the wall is made up of concrete bricks. I also have a few cattleya mounted and hanging there too but they have not bloomed as yet, posting a picture of the bracket so that you could have a better idea of what I did Name:  CIMG0870a.jpg

    I haven't watered mine in over 2 months (I just don't care anymore, but maybe I'll start back up) and it has yet to drop a single leaf and has only slight wrinkles. I don't think they actually need to be watered every single day unless they're hanging out back in the desert.
