Default Show me how you grow your Sarcochilus!

I seem every month to come home with a new small sarc hybrid from the raffle at my orchid club, prior to now I haven't really kept them at all... I grow most of my plants so they can be used as display plants in my patio when they are looking nice so I'm after interesting ways to pot/mount them and would love to see what others do with them. Other than sinply putting them on cork or tree fern I had thought about mount them high on large chucks of scoria(bubbly volcanic type) rock or on driftwood like the mount I shared in the forums recently but that is as far as I have got.

Firstly, Sarcochilus are vandaceous NOT Pleuro's.
In England I grow mine in pots in my cool greenhouse min 10c with all doors and windows open from March till October. Culture as for Odontoglossums.

yes, it was brought to my attention that these are Vandaceous - somehow the genus got listed under Pleuro alliance forum - I'm going to message admin to see if that can be corrected

I thought they were but being new to their keeping and having no real in depth knowledge of them I read through until I found it in the listings :P I was rather surprised to find them in the pleuros so that explains that lol

They grow really well mounted and I also have 2 growing well in open terracotta pots, the style of them is sometimes called "noodle bowl pots".
I'm also wanting more for my collection
