    Yes, that is fishing line which I don't bother to use anymore as it's an absolute pain trying to tie with these arthritic fingers.I now use nylons cut into strips & then pulled tightly to make them really thin & also the plastic netting that you get on things such as onions.That again you can pull tightly to make a sort of cord or leave it to provide the netting to hold on sphagnum on to the roots of a mount like a pouch.I think this was the last thing I mounted using the fishing filament sometime early last year.

    Thank you, and Thank you!
    You didn't have to go to the trouble,
    but I'm sure glad you did,
    it was very kind of you to post more pictures.
    They are even prettier than I thought,
    and now I know the flowers can last more than a day, too.
    ...And I'll bet they're fragrant, also.
    With a name like fragrans, how can they not be?
    Have you noticed a perfume?

    L I Jane,
    I hope you still visit this thread now and then.
    I have a schoenorchis fragans, also, but now the leaves are turning brown. I think I'm doing something wrong.
    How do you cultivate your litte orchid?

    I've had mine at a window facing south, in the shade at noon time but direct sunlight in the evenings.
    When I noticed the leaves turning brown, I put it in a small green house for increased humidity. I now see that that may have been a mistake. It didn't do too much good.

    Can you help me?
    Please be very specific in details.

    Thank you
