    Hmm guess I could add to the pile..

    I have had these tree fern stakes for ages. The treefern is very brittle and coarse.. not the light brown soft osmunda fiber...Think they are about 2" thick and 3-4" wide. I cut off a couple pieces about 10" long and put some LFS on the face, tied on with some nylon thread.

    Here is a U. quelchii growing through the block. It's been about a year or so since I put a tiny piece with a few leaves in the center of the moss. They get watered every day so the moss stays pretty wet. You can see from the photo on the right side the leaf sticking out from the block of tree fern, so the Utric seems to be growing into the block, not just staying in the moss layer. Hard to see but there are some Utric stolons growing out of the moss on the bottom right in the photo.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Ya seems to be happy. The leaves don't seem to be gaining much in size yet though. So either it needs to get to some critical mass or it could use some feeding.. what though is the question. I was hoping by using the tree fern that it would break down slowly and feed the Utric but dunno if that is working. The tree fern does stay pretty damp also and seems to be breaking down a bit. Particularly at the bottom edge. Maybe I should turn the block upside down periodically ;> right now they are just standing on end in a tray on the bench in between some potted utrics.

    Oh hehe
    It's in a section of the greenhouse that gets 'rained on' every day and it was mid morning so things were still wet. So I guess I will make this followup on how it's growing.
    In a pot of my Nepenthes mix which is coconut husk chunks, chunky perlite and LFS with a light watering daily. It stays pretty wet but the mix drains really well. My Orchidioides Utrics stay in this location all year. During the Winter I reduce the sprinkler on time and the number of days each week so they might get a little less water then but I think they still stay pretty moist and don't receive any type of noticeable dryer rest period.
