Default My orchid tree

Thought I'd share this idea for anyone who does live in areas conducive to keeping orchids outdoors. I don't have a whole lot of space for pots everywhere at the moment (although they still seem to creep into every available space :P ) but I do have this tree on my property. Last year I decided one day to just stick a whole bunch of spare plants all over the tree and see what would stick. They've done about 18 months there now and are starting to stick to the tree with their own roots and most are now putting out new leaves.

I have attached Dendrobium speciosum, a yellow oncidium, a Miltonia, a Liriope, an Osmoglossum pulchellum and my mystery red leaved Dendrobium. Non-orchids on the tree are 3 tillandsias and a Staghorn fern.

Great Idea. When everything is established and blooming you will be awed!

I must take an updated photo as the orchids have grown a bit and the tillandsia in the middle has decided to flower and has turned bright red

Good luck with yours ordphien!

So pretty! My inlaws in Fl have naturally rooted air plants on many of their trees-I'm hoping that they will catch my orchid fever and try hanging a few orchids here and there.

There was another member who does this same thing in Southern California, in the US. His screen name is "epiphyte78". He had some older posts with pics. Anyone who is interested can check those out too.
