    When you mount it on a piece of wood/driftwood, try to mount it 2/3 of the way up the mount so that the roots have room to move down along the mount. When I got mine it was already mounted on a thin piece of wood about 1 foot long and 2 1/2 inches wide. 3 years on most of the original wood has rotted and I have carefully removed the old wood and transferred it onto the present hardwood mount. You can see the wire twine used to secure it to the new mount. When I began growing orchids I had the same fears and trepidations as you and I'm sure, as have other beginners. Years of experience have given me more confidence and the realisation that orchids are very tough plants. However, I have killed my share of orchids and I still have to learn to take better care of my large flowered phalaenopsis and plants from the Oncidium alliance.

    Thanks so much Canh for the offer. I must really make an effort to visit you in Hanoi not for the orchids, which would be very difficult to bring back to Malaysia, but to see your wonderful collection and if possible to visit some of the locations of your native orchids.
