    Default Ornithocephalus bicornus

    This plant is about the size of a thumbtack head. The person doing the selling found it hanging by dead roots and put a thick wad of sphagnum under it. I myself, don't like the idea because if it does grow roots they have a long way to go to reach the mount (which I have to change anyway). Yea or nay to sphag?

    Very nice species. Candidate for mounting. I would possibly put little moss around the roots when I mount them

    This species is best mounted on cork, tree fern or wood, given shady, humid conditions with even, year round waterings.
