    Congrats on both of your new arrivals...hopefully Zachary will let you get away long enough to do the mounting

    Very cute Zachary! Wish you luck with the mounting - mine's in a pot and staying there as I have no room to put mounts around the flat.

    No...I wouldn't mount Zach! He seems pretty happy as is!

    As for the 'chid, the plant probably grows horizontally as Catts typcially do. It means it will grow away from the mount, which will reduce a lot of moisture and humidity to the roots. Just a guess.
