    Default Epidendrum magnoliae 'Green Fly'

    I recently did a buy it now on an auction website for these pieces of epidendrum magnoliae 'Green Fly' for a very few $$. I was actually surprised that it was more than one piece when it arrived. I knew it was bare root when I bought, but I wasn't really sure what I was expecting.

    When I received them, it struck me that these should be mounted. So I acquired some tree fern and cut it up into 4 pieces and have mounted 2 of the 3 so far. I ran out of line to complete mounting all 3 pieces. This is my first attempt at mounting one myself. I hope I did ok.

    Below is the remaining unmounted piece. This is probably the middle sized clump of the 3.
    And then the results of the mounting.

    I gave one away.

    The other mounted is going very slowly but growing. The moss is growing faster!

    This is the same mount as the last image in the original post.

    Great decision! It is exactly what it needs.

    If you don't mind, I'd like to share some pics of the species in situ. I took the pics in one of our local State parks. Epidendrum magnolia blooms in Tampa Bay in December-January

    Cool! Thanks for the pics!

    I guess the one piece that I haven't mounted needs to be. It has not grown a bit being in a pot. I kind of left it unmounted as an experiment. Mounted won!

    OK, I have now mounted the potted piece.

    Here it is. It might be a bit close to the end of the stick but I have it hanging at the rear of the brightest orchidarium.

    I've become pretty experienced mounting these guys now.
