    I mounted a N. X judith Finn. It has been a little over 24 hrs but the leaves and tendril are still growing, color is staying the same as well. I am misting every couple hours on top of intense humidity here. I am not sure what it is at the moment but it has been averaging in 90+% the last week, overnight as well. Though dropping in to 60-70s at night. I disterbed as little as possible of the roots and I think i did a good job.

    Are you guys talking about mounting these plants as epiphytes (i.e. with very little/no soil and exposed roots)? Or... are you just 'repotting' them in some form of wall-hanging pot/basket?

    I actually mount as epiphyte. It works very well with many tropical plants actually if you know how to mount correctly and understand the particular plants needs. I myself am a huge fan of epiphytes (except orchids) and regularly collect them. That is how I got into Neps, I was moving toward a new group of epiphytes. I found out later that they are not typically totally epiphytic and when they are it is only a few. I love them anyway now.

    Kirk did you say you mounted a Sarr? I never thought of it. Won't it be a challenge to keep it moist enough? Let me know how it goes. Goodluck

    Rattler, I would suggest something hybrid and hardy, because it is a bit troublesome to fit a chunk of wood into a chamber without being a pain-in-the-***. I used Manzanita. It is 3' and around 6" across. It will be in typical household conditions during winter, I'll have to add humidity though.

    As everyone knows, before you mount your specimen, you have to stalk and kill it first...... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
