Sorry about this but I keep thinking of new things to mention one of the reasons I started my website was to get some information out there.Too many sites on epiphytes go on about tying the plant directly on to the naked bark sometimes with the adition of some sphagnum moss This will work in southern florida where you could take an orchid out of its pot ,throw it up into a tree and wherever it stuck it would grow same in the Amazon but humidity is 100 percent and rains every day. Our gardens are not like that Nearly all epiphytes naturally grow in moss and or thick growths of lichen already established on the branch so we need to provide a growing media.. Does this information help

Thanks. I will try this out. Knowing which ones stand a chance of success in dryer conditions is a big step towards success.
