    Default Oncidium flexuosum growing on Epiweb

    Epiweb is a synthetic tree-fern substitute I was persuaded to buy and try. Does not seem to hold water at all, but roots grow through it . Fine if you can spray every day or more. I putb two newly purchased plants of this species onto different slabs of Epiweb.The other one ( not shown here) has three spikes, but not many flowers out yet.
    The jury is still out on whether this is a good idea - maybe it is for this species, which if I put it into a pot, immediately tries to climb out again. ( For those who don't recognise the joke, every new growth is always a couple of inches above the last).

    That is one healthy looking oncidium orchid, Geoff. Love all the bright yellow blooms on it.

    Cheers,

    The roots do seem to like crawling all over the epiweb.
