    Default Mounted orchids

    Here are some more pictures of mounted orchids currently in my collection.

    Some of the previous mounts failed. Either the plant did not like it or the plant died completely so I reused some of the driftwood for new attempts.







    I did not have enough time to label the pictures.
    If you have any questions about any particular picture, just post your question here and I will be happy to answer.

    Enjoy!
    John

    Mabuhay!

    I am so loving the mount. The orchids are well-fed. How is the air-circulation in your GH?

    Again, Congrats!!!

    Beautiful efforts, John. I have to thank you for mentioning some of your mounts failed. I'm in kind of in a funk today because I lost my Phal violacea v Malaysia that I mounted recently, to crown rot. Its the first one I actually feel responsible for killling one, and I so wanted to bloom that little seedling. I guess if you could have some not do great in a greenhouse, I should buck up about losing my lil gal in my lanai.
    Good Growing,
    Tony

    Been a while, John. Good to see you!

    Some very nice pieces of driftwood you have there.

    We all lose some plants, Tony. Just chalk it up to the learning experience. Out of curiosity, how did you have the phal oriented on the mount? With phals, it often is helpful with regards to avoiding crownrot, to mount them with the crown facing down or down and out.
