    While I am not Jlap I may be able to answer the Litho q,

    Lithophytes are plants that are found growing on rocks, boulders, bare stone cliffs etc.

    There are many Neps found in places that would indicate at least a few of them would grow as Lithophytes although given a Neps thirst I would suggest that there would be some sort of leaf mould or peat located in a crack or deppresion to be able to support the plant. Having said that, stranger things have been discovered and anything is posible.
    Maybe a good experiment to try, set up kinda like the bonsai with the roots trained down over the rocks, who knows?

    Cheers, Chris.

    the neps that appear to "mounted" on the poles are actually palm trees. The plant is planted in the scutes of the tree the the moss is allowed to grow

    I have been doing very well with the Judith Finn. I added a pinch of Agar to help the soil stay moist a little longer. I also use Mycorrhiza on all my mountings, I notice a huge difference.

    Update for those who care: The N. 'Judith Finn' I have mounted, is finally settled in and putting out growth at every bit the rate that any other Nep in soil would and it is beginning to pitcher normally. Leaves are getting bigger in leaps and bounds now.
