    i've heard that some neps like N. campanulata grow BETTER mounted. in the case of N. campanulata, it was mounted on a rock.

    You guys are perverted and odd, why in the ... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] ... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    JLP, I have ......... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] dangit, now I feel weird saying mounted, anyway I have been "doing this" (shut up guys [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ) with plants for awhile since my collection is mainly epiphytic cactus. Most tropical plants will live epiphytically on many kinds of wood, if given a large enough peice and the right support along with patience and time. You have to wait for the root system to dig in to the wood and the small white roots will readliy grab on, the hardest part is keeping them damp enough. As for Neps, this is my first try and am not sure what to expect from them epiphytically. Lithophyting might be difficult to do since they are a bit more delicate with regards to salts and what not, I am also not sure what kind of rock you would use. I know that N.northiana for ex. lives in limestone cliff faces but I have been told it doesn't appreciate limestone in its potting mix.

    Many pings also do well mounted. I have a mini glass bowl experiment going at the moment, I have a p. moranensis on a tilted slab of beach driftwood (soaked the salt out for months) that is sitting on small beach rocks. There is some spag behind the wood between the bowl glass, and some up top. There is a tiny bit wrapped around the ping's roots, but that's only until it attaches to the wood properly. I just put water on the rocks and let the wood and spag soak it up. It's been over a month and it's still growing nicely. I'd like to try mounting a nep if I'm successful with the ping.

    It is pretty easy if you have the patience. I know nothing of pings though. Thats interesting none-the-less, I wouldn't have thought of doing it.
