    Thanks for all the advice, gang! And all the offers to take it off my hands. LOL

    I'm going to try and extricate it from the old basket without doing too much damage. There is nothing inside the basket, it has long since decomposed or fallen out as there's no bottom on this thing. A nice, new teak basket and a Superthrive cocktail seems to be answer.

    Thanks again for all your input!!! I love this place!

    I'm Closer than Tami send it to me !!!! Actually it would do quite well on a tree if you have one to mount it on.

    Wow... at this rate, I don't really think I'll have to worry about mounting it! There won't be anything left after paying for all the advice! LOL

    I would set it in on a pot of some kind does not need mix the one in the picture was ? is ? in a 4 inch pot it is still in the center somewhere . I took a wire and ran it thru the pot hole from the top put a hook on it at the bottom so It did not pull thru and a hook at the top so it could be hung up . At one time when it was small I tried to keep it in a pot , it won ,I lost , this is the end of the bloom season for it .. Gin

    That is one cool nodosa, Gin. That's what I'm shooting for.
