    Looks great Gin.
    I love the look of mounts but it just seems a lot of work to keep them wet.

    I've been looking for an phal equestris the only problem is that the vendor I'm getting my catts and paphs from doesn't have phals. Prolly end up driving to one of the local nurseries.

    They look really good. I did wonder about the upside down one from the photo -- I thought perhaps you were going for some unique flower display -- but then I see you fixed it. Such a cute little species.

    The one that is upside down is mounted that way ,so water won't sit in the crown . the one in the second picture is face to the mount I turned it around was not stuck yet . Thanks for looking .. Gin
