An enterprising individual could make their name in the orchid-growing world with something like this. Instead of Andy's Orchids trademark "Orchids on a Stick," we could have something like "Orchids in a Wig," which could be marketed as wearable orchids. Okay, I obviously need to go check my meds today.
A plant club I'm a member of his holding a plant sale this spring with the theme "Halloween in April". Sounds like a good place to try selling those!

Coconut fiber is good for lining baskets, then the bark media does not fall through and air exchange is still pretty good. Or, a pot with large holes - stuff a tuft of coconut fiber into the hole to keep the media in. But, traditionally/conventionally, sphagnum moss was used the same way, at least way back in the day when I took the horticulture class in college. ; -)
