    I have about 6 bulbs that right now and I replanted them in different ways. One is in a basket pot with moss, three are on fern planks with moss, and 2 that are in fern baskets. None look, of course as healthy as your, but none have died yet either. The ones in the greenhouse at the moment are either on the bottom under my Vandas or hanging where they all get morning sun to some degree. the one is fern basktes are grown under artificial light in my enclosed patio. This area is more humid than in my house and appear to be handling this envirnment. I know each bulb has different enviironment requirements so as the spring approaches I will have to decide on any changes to be made.

    I am interested in what you call coconut fiber sheets. I have these sheets I guees you would call them that were meant to be put in this hanging contraption for plants I never used. Is that what you are referring to and if so, are there are plants that would benefit growing using the sheets I described? Just trying to learn more as my orchid experience grows considering even though I have no room for anymore I still am on the look out and am prepared to buy more.. A true orchidolic.........

    Monica,
    What kind of moss are you talking about? Not all moss holds that much moisture.

    The coconut fiber sheets that I use is very similar to the liners in those baskets you mentioned but thicker. I have not been able to buy any more sheets in a couple of months as the supplier has been out but as of this week he was expecting a shipment soon.

    I will be re-doing that display in the spring, I did not think enough of the size of each Bulbo growth when I was mounting them and some have grown larger then others so they are blocking a lot of the smaller ones.

    Sphagnum moss is what I was taling about. Do you thing the coconut fiber would be a better choice? Even though I live in a humid environment, I don't see it keeping as much moisture as the sphagnum since it get hot during the summer and I dont always have the time to water every day. Yes, it's true and one of my biggest guilt trips.. Ugghhh
