Epiphyte Grand Prix

Ready...steady...grow!

 

Lately I've been bundling everything and attaching the bundles to my tree. It's more efficient to attach a bundle of plants to a tree than it is to attach the plants individually.

 

This photo is of a bundle that I attached to my tree back in May 2011. Here's the list of plants that were included....

 

Aeschynanthus hybrid - cutting

Anthurium scandens (xeric form) - rooted

Begonia NOID - cutting

Campyloneurum angustifolium - cutting

Cissus amazonica - cutting

Dermatobotrys saundersii - rooted

Disterigma pentandrum - cutting

Ficus diversifolia (Variegated) - rooted

Hoya engleriana - cutting

Impatiens keilii - cutting

Iresine herbstii - cutting

Macleania insignis - rooted

Medinilla sedifolia - cutting

Pleurothallis palliolata - keiki

Pleurothallis restrepioides - keiki

Schlumbergera NOID - cutting

Tillandsia albertiana

Tillandsia butzii

 

Feel free to place your bets on how any of the plants did. After a few days or so I'll take a photo of the bundle on my tree and upload it.

 

Recently, rather than open bundles, I've been creating super simple "pockets" by folding over rectangular pieces of coconut fiber (the kind used for basket liners). I stuff the pockets with moss, plants and seeds...then I attach the pockets to the tree using fishing line.
