Mounted Neof. falcatta Female
Question Mounted Neof. falcatta

I have two Neof. plants that I have mounted on cork slabs. Not having a problem attaching them to the mount but trying to hang them so the slab is upright is giving me fits. What can I attach to the slab and where? Then what should I use to hang the mount to my ceiling fixture? Thank you.

Do you have a pic? What you're describing is pretty vague, I'm having a very difficult time picturing it.

Hi Zoey, I just drill a hole in the cork and put a piece of wire through it. You can bend the wire around the cork and into a hanger in various different ways, it shouldn't really matter as long as it winds up secure on the cork and with a hook for hanging on the other end. Hope this helps!

I agree with Philip a picture helps! So, I took one of mine which sounds similarly mounted to yours.

Here's a pic of mine mounted on cork; It is actually on 2 slabs as it got too big for the original so I tied it to a bigger piece of cork. If you are hanging it from the ceiling - I suppose you could use the same sort of hook as this but it would have to be more 'bent'. and hook into a wire from the ceiling? , (mine hangs into a big plastic bottle - whose top half has been cut off) I have tried to draw in what I mean. I hope this helps.

Thanks. Had not thought of doing it that way. Have been using fishing line but the wire sounds much better.

Thanks. Looks like you are using s- hooks. Will try that. I like the plastic bottle underneath to catch the drippings.
