    Glorious Gin! But if they are in your way, I'm sure we could find some space somewhere else for them.... say in California???

    That's absolutely beautiful Gin. Wow! Gives me something to aspire to--my very first equestris arrived today (but she's only got a leafspan of 6"). How old is your plant?

    I bought a flask of them 3 or 4 years ago , the wire they are attatched to are extra shelves from racks I have in the greenhouse , I used my handy dandy driver to hook the racks to the wall .. Mehera they grow fast and bloom when fairly small . Cin I think green coated wire can be bought in a roll , just (borrow the driver ,screws, and washers ) Gin

    OOH! That's what I'm going to try when mine gets big enough. I love the drapey look of the spikes hanging down; so graceful!
