    I'm thinking of trying some of my smaller neps in net pots with hooks hanging from the chickenwire on the back and sides of my terrarium. I haven't seen too many people do this (Arie has a neat tank with tons and tons of hanging pots) I'm wondering if there's anything special I need to know or worry about before I try this myself?
    Does it take the plants long to adjust from hanging at a bit of an angle? Do they like it better this way? I know many hang from cliffs or grow as epiphytes so it should be somewhat natural... Asside from size is there any reason plants shouldn't be hung?

    The two plants I have in mind presently are N. lowii and N. inermis. I've already moved them to the new 4" net pots (should last them a long time seeing as they are awful slow growers anyway).

    Any tips from nep hangers would be appreciated! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I've never used chicken wire but I've hung my smaller neps using big suction cups with hooks on the end and they seem to enjoy it =)

    Hi Josh,

    how should the plants reckognize they are in a hanging pot - as long as you don't tell em... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    The slightly different growing-angle should not make any difference.

    I use a plastic net attach to the tererrum walls so I can easily hang the pots to it.
