    What a long beauty this is and with so much color to it. I have a retusa in spike, but i doubt it will be this colorful. AL

    My observation for short term is ok to put in baskets but for long term preferably mounted to tree, personally I prefer mounted rather than put in baskets, they keep producing keiksi, long aerial roots and as they grow getting more bulky and heavier those mounted the plants even more healthier as compared in the basket.
