HOW TO MOUNT STAGHORN FERNS AND OTHER EPIPHIC FERNS
First get or build your boxes or
boards and find sutible fabric or
string to attach your plant with.
I use fishing line to tie ferns
to boards and plastic netting
to cover the boxes
In a box you can put a some planting mix
something light with perilite and orchid
bark works well. Then use spagnum moss on top of the mix and make
a hole for your plant.
Place you plant in the center or a little below center and add moss to hold
planting mix and plant in place. Cut a hole in your netting material to fit
over the plant and nail or staple in place. Don't worry if your hole is a
little large use some fishing line back and forth to secure you plant.
On board mounts I use fishing line tied to
nails back and forth across the roots or
sheilds of the fern careful not to damage
the bud. This holds the fern and moss in place.
