    Unhappy

    Has anyone ever tried growing a Nep like a mounted orchid? I think I might try it, if I can get hold of a cheap nep. If youve tried what were your conclusions, and how did you grow it? What species did you try? I think it would be a fun experiment. Thanks for the feedback.

    I know it's been done. I think Swords did it with one of the species.... insermis maybe? Many nep species grow ephitically.

    Kinda like this?

    This is the Gallery,
    it's all in Japanese but he has put up some nice pics of his plants (mounted ones as well), which should be enough explanation [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Good luck, and have fun!

    Most epiphytic orchids are grown in pots because a mounted plant is very sensitive to drying and temperature swings and sun. But, if you can provide the environmental conditions they expect, anything is possible. Even a mounted Nep.

    I currently hqave a 'Judith Finn' mounted to manzanita wood. It is working fine but does need to be watered every day as was said it dries very quickly. It puts out new leaves and pitchers just the same. I also added mycorrhiza to the mix its mounted in.

    JLAP, what you describe would be lithophytic and I beleive ther are many lithos in Neps as well.
