    Default Neo. falcata 'Heonggang' on stone

    OK, this is my first mounting on stone but since there was no way the stone would stand with a plant on it I decided to hang it using galvanised wire.

    Thank you, Kmac! I'll probably never find another stone with a hole in it but I'll keep looking.
