Attaching orchids to trees
Hi, I'm in Thailand and I want to attach orchids to big trees. The common practice here is to put the orchids in chunks of Coconut husk which is then wired to the tree trunk. Eventually, as the orchid roots grow on the tree the coconut husk can be removed.
I'm looking for a natural looking alternative to using coconut. Sphagnum moss is available from Bangkok but it is very expensive and I will need a lot.
Has anyone got any ideas of what I can use?
