Watering a mounted orchid consists of a thorough root misting?
i mount my bulbo with a thin layer of long fibre sphagnum moss on a very durable Eusideroxylon zwageri "iron wood of Borneo" . The bulbo send out many spikes recently.
Anyone who can help me with the ID?
Don't know what the name of that is...but it sure is pretty! Healthy looking. too. Betty
Anyone ever mount an orchid on a tree fern slab? If so...how did the orchid like the tree fern...Betty
Wow...im going to the beach right now to go look for some driftwood lol.
I'm having thoughts of mounting one to hang over my shower(that I use daily), with smaller windows facing south & west...I live in the greatlakes area so it's not like I get hot sun all day every day...what kind might survive and would I still mist it often? Thanks, Rick
Thanks for the tip, John. I actually mounted a large cattleya on a piece of fern bark. Packed coconut fibre around it...The orchid is healthy with new roots just starting...I'm pretty sure it will be O.K. It's a sunny day in Texas, so now, I'm out of here...going to play in my greenhouse! Betty
I would try a Bulbophyllum. They like warmth and humidity and don't require high light.
The Swedish orchid magazine, Orkideer, will be translating my article and will be including it in their magazine for the April 2010 publication.
So if you are from that part of the world, please check it out. I have seen the pre-print version and the entire magazine is amazing - I only wish I had someone to translate the whole thing to English for me
