    I just acquired a bare root division of Oncidium globuliferum. If you grow this or have even seen one growing, I am looking for the best way to mount or pot it. Because of it's growth habit I was planning on using a tree fern totem or perhaps finding a wreath frame with sphagnum tied to it and training it in a circle. Any thoughts?

    Kelly, a friend has one in his greenhouse.He mounted it on a large branch, and suspended it horizontally above the isle, it really waited till it was a large plant before it bloomed.
    I also saw the species from an aerial walkway in a forest in Costa Rica, rambling over the tops of trees.
    Good luck

    Thanks, Juan. Is the wire mesh doubled over and filled with sphagnum moss? I currently have mine on cork which it will likely out-grow soon. However, it is already growing new roots and growths from every pseudobulb.
