More questions from a novice
I purchased a SLC three weeks ago at my local orchid society show. The vendor told me I could mount it when it was through flowering. Today was the day to tackle the project. I chose a 7x7 piece of fern fiber that I tucked away after another orchid died.
Somehow while trimming roots I knocked off an eye. While securing the plant to the fern fiber with raffia I noticed two additional eyes that seem to have been eaten by something.
My questions are:
Is a SLC a good candidate for mounting on fern fiber?
Was there anything I should have done to the recycled fern fiber before mounting a new plant on it?
Should I have cut off the two eyes?
Should I put netting or pantyhose with medium around the roots to get it started?
Thanks for your patience and answering my questions.
