    Default Beautiful wood mount - what should I grow in this?

    I found a lovely natural wood orchid mount. It has a dip in the middle and a lip at the bottom to support the plant and help retain moisture. The back is almost entirely flat so it can be mounted on a wall like a plaque, the way I'm holding it in the photo.

    What should I grow in this?! Ideas please! What will look cute and stay compact?

    It can't be a Phal because they don't do well mounted in my situation. Better if it's suited to staying outside all year in my warm-temperate climate.

    Thanks for your ideas Here it is:

    I've got it! Haraella retrocalla. Small and cute. I do have a lot of trouble getting them to thrive though...

    Oh Oh Oh! C. walkeriana semi-alba!!!!! Tiny, sweet, cute, slow-growing, and beautiful white blooms with purple lip--will perfume its whole growing area. Stays outside all year in growing area similar to yours. Blooms twice a year.
