Sometimes a mounted plant does better if the mount is horizontal - watering is a bit more efficient that way because it doesn't all run off so fast. Once it gets going, hanging it vertically is...

Suggestion... put a bit of sphagnum moss over the roots. This will help keep the roots hydrated, but still getting plenty of air. Once the roots attach to the mount, you can remove the sphagnum if...

Mine is mounted, but with a big pad of spaghnum moss. So I think moss is a good medium for this species. Even though it may lose leaves from older canes, it does not want a dry rest period. I have...
