Default 6 phals and their friends all happy together

Started this one last spring and decided to just stick a bit of everything on it ... six phals in all along with two lou sneery bluebirds several divisions of zoothrophium and a clump of toulimia on the top growing in between it all presently three phals spiking and one Lou sneery about ready to bloom .... the zootrophium likes to sneek along inside the hollow mount and emerge from any cracks it can grow through to the outside and has really surprised me ...

All but two of the phals I have tags for and know the names for them but Im fond of just referring to it as the knot of noids bacause I always have to stop and look them upto be sure .... the phal on the very top is a noid mini phal from Home depo that is also peloric

Three of the phals have spikes

That looks really nice!
I have been thinking of doing this for smaller plants like tolumnias. haven't tried yet, still looking for a nice looking piece of tree branch.

By the way, I keep wondering though, what would you do in a few years when all those plants get their roots all grown into each others' ???
