This is burnhams 'becky falls' clone, well worth the few quid extra.

So today I thought I'd try something new. (for me)

My Flaccida was dying slowly due to lack of water and humidity. It was mounted on a tree branch and despite daily watering/misting the conservatory was too dry and warm. I saw some orchids mounted in Kokedama. Not being able to get hold of Moss in sheets quickly I decided to try a covering of coconut coir.

I used fine florist wire and a large darning needle to help me stitch the coir over the florist Oasis. Once I had stitched all the coir in place I used a short heavy duty piece of florist wire to thread 1.5mm coated wire from the bottom all the way to the top of the Oasis to form an attachment point. Hopefully this will give my struggling Coelogyne a much needed boost of H2O.

I have reused the elastic bands to remount the Flaccida. The bands were the ones originally used to mount it when I bought it. What are peoples thoughts on elastic bands as anchors for our kids?
