Platy mount experiment
« on: August 27, 2008, 12:38:23 PM »
It's been pretty quiet in this topic board, so... I had some extra platycerium sporelings and had just cut down a few mai nong gong trees, so I decided to try some experimentation. It seems to have worked pretty well and was quite a quick process to do.











I'll let you know how it works out!

Hi Wanna.

 I used what we call a 'spade bit' for an electric drill. It has a sharp point in the center and then widens to whatever size you buy. If it's still not clear let me know and I will take and post a picture of it.

Shawn,

You are very innovative.  ;D It is very neat.  Do you tie them with monofilament fishing line?  :)

 Thanks Apodagis! The holes are just big enough to plug the plantlet and a little sphagnum into, but then I have wrapped more sphagnum around the plant/log with fishing line so they won't dry out too quickly.
