    Default Dinema polybulbon Mount

    Here's a quick shot of a mount I rigged up this week. It turned out pretty well, but has been drying out a bit too fast while the driftwood it's mounted on soaks up some water...



    As far as I can tell, the moss is knight's plume moss. I bought a sheet of it in NYC a few weekends ago. It's held together with cotton thread, which I'm hoping will hold up for a while. There's not a good scale in the pic, but those pbulbs are about 1cm tall. Also, here's a shot of my new indoor growing area. Nevermind all the junk in the background haha



    Lights are all 6500K T8 fluorescents. So far growth is good, and I've got four phals putting out multiple spikes. The mounted polybulbon is visible on the right-hand side of the lower shelf.

    Holy crap! Someone brought me in a division of Epidendron polybulbon last week. Such a tiny rambler!
