    Xvart like Ben said those are orchid roots hanging down all over the place. They just go everywhere when there is no tree for them to attach to.
    Mesh pots eh...interesting. Do you have to water the ones potted in the mesh pots more often then? Since I assume they would dry out faster? How long are your roots out of curiosity?

    Meavin what picture are you refuring too? First picture second post? That is a Raff. It is just starting to look good too.

    Outsider. Yes the mesh pots do need watering a little more, but its no bother because I have some orchids that need watering every day. I have a few potted differently to see how they work. Some I mixed sphag with orchid bark and used that in the mesh pots. There is one I lined the pot with Sphag and then used a peat mix with orchid bark in the center the I top dressed in sphag. So far so good with them all. I will take some pictures of the mesh post. They are a firm mesh and not a flimsy mesh. They were bought by my mother for orchid pots, but she didn't like them because they dried out to fast in her house. They work fine in the GH. I would have to send you the link to the place online to get them. They are listed in my AOS mag.
