Surprisingly, after searching for nearly a year to find a decent looking an elephant ear Alocacia I found a really nice one at Target (of all places).
it's potted in a mix of peat and LF sphagnum but had a top dressing of something I've wanted for a long time, living spanish moss! It's slightly grey/green and is very supple (squishable).
I collected all the spanish moss off the top of the pot and soaked it in distilled water with a drop or two of superthrive and currently just have it laying on my eggcrate grid that the nepenthes pots sit on (so they may drain freely and have the water evaporate and make awesome humidity).
What *is a good way to mount this to cork slab or to a *dead tree limb and have it grow and colonize my arboreal/epiphytic *terrarium? do i need to tie it with fishing line or does it take root easily to new surfaces?
Thanks for any thoughts!
