The root porn on this Nefinetia is unbelievable! And it's a photo of just one side of the plant. And to think that it was nearly completely rootless when I bought it 2 years ago. I'd like to think I can take all the credit, but I think Kelpak (Kelpmax) also has a lot to do with it. I never had such amazing root growth until I started using it last July.

That's awesome Camille! I've been growing my first for maybe half a year to year now. Have been doing semi-hydro... it doesn't appear to mind, but also doesn't appear to be really thriving. Have been thinking seriously about mounting it and putting in with a few other small mounted plants...a few Tolumnia, my Pondangis, a struggling Vanda in recovery mode, and a something I can't ever remember name of.

Seeing yours, pretty well convinced I'm gonna make that move. I've seen no growth on it that impressive. Says the woman who refuses to do any more mounted plants.

They just keep popping onto mounts... appears to be beyond my control.
