    Well, as they(2) are now, in a plastic 4" pot with coarse bark,charcoal, and coarse perlite, I think I shall leave them where they are and see what hapens. All I know is that mounting is not an option because I have no place to hang anything. I think i should put them in a clay pot, but geez Louise, sometimes i believe i am on an island, because I can not find a clay pot anywhere!. would not a coir pot offer good air circulation? But i think I need the weight of clay.
