    Default Dendrochilum cootesii

    My favorite Dendrochilum. It is compact (about 6" plant)...a major plus! I mounted it last year but I think it is running too dry, the leaves are curled a bit this year...so back into a pot it goes

    Hi
    It looks like dangerous and occult

    Horns from the devil

    I´m wondered what is the material over the roots ?
    It´s for more moisture ?

    I had some Sphag over the roots but added a layer of coco fiber to help retain more moisture. With the new growth, the new roots may help with the moisture issue. I would prefer to keep it mounted if I can. I do have a division of it in a pot for backup if this should dimp on me

    I use the liners designed for hanging baskets found in garden centers.

    Hi Ron,
