Have some funm, it's not all serious.
About 3 years ago I had this large Maxillaria tenuifolia, exactly the same size as the same plant shown today, and chopped it in half. Potted up 1/2 of it and it has regained the previous size, ready to be chopped again. Here is a picture of it.
The other half was divided into about 20 little plants. Gave/traded some away and then tied the rest to this gnarled 2 1/2' long log, from top to bottom, front and back. Many of the small plants did not have a good root system so not all took. Here we are 3 years later and 13 of the are growing on that log, some even in bloom. I hope that some day this will be a solid cylinder of Maxillaria tenuifolia.
It's not necessary to always put things in neat pots, baskets or clean mounts it's good to have some fun sometimes.
