    Default Monster Neof. falcata

    A few Years ago, a friend mounted this on the bottom of a 12" clay pot. It has taken off in leaps and bounds. I thought he was crazy mounting it this way but I guess I was wrong. It seems to be very happy...and does it smell nice!!!

    Fantastic!!! what an idea! seriosly, are orchid folks clever or what! I think I'm gonna try this with one of mine... seems easier than mucking around with sphagnum moss.
