Thanks for that. I did notice a root coming from a node on one stem, which is why I left it vertical, until that root took hold. I could add an extra tie and hold that node down - I'll do that. Water...

On a more serious note, when I mounted the Coilostytlis it turned out that all the older root was rotted, and there was just a ring of new roots around the base. It had been grown in a pot with bark,...

I notice that lots of plant people are also foodies - obviously a connection. I am a lifelong vegetarian (I eat some fish, but I can take it or leave it - just for the protein/low fat combination,...

Well since I love olive (and anchovies and capers too), and I used to like Talking Heads in the day, I guess I am all set! It's true though, you either like messing around with plants, or you don't!...

No, they are just dry and shriveled, so this sounds like a good idea. I can see that it is very different from burying them in potting soil, where they most certainly do start to rot and cause...

That's a beautiful plant! Now I am glad I tried it. I see the red leaves, which I understand mean it is getting enough light. So it really should be mounted upside down, and not just sideways? I can...

Thanks - the Epidendrum is in a pot, and the bottom felt a little damp when I stuck a finger down, so I am not sure. I will water the mounted plants in the morning, as I had been doing last week, and...
