    Thank you Jason!
    I like to play with mounting materials. Coconut shells are long-lasting and good looking (in my opinion). It was very easy to mount the plant.

    Ron, thanks!

    I did not buy the coconut shell, I just bought a coconut in a grocery store.Then, I asked my husband to cut it in half. He used one of his power tools.
