    Default Mounting Bulbo orchid on tree fern plaque

    Hello everyone,

    I decided to cut a few pbulbs off of my Bulb. fascinator that I want to mount on a tree fern plaque. This is the first time I'm going to do this and I don't want to mess up. Please see attached photos. My questions; do I push the plant down so the roots will be flat on the plaque and then put some moss over or do I just let it be like that and put the moss around and secure or tie the plant?

    Any advice will be greatly appreaciated.

    Yes, just be sure to cover the roots so that they stay moist. Good luck, Marissa!

    Cheers,
