Wow, thanks for the responses so far. The article in the Orchids Magazine
mentioned the technique of using the expandable foam and then covering it
with cork bark. I would like to get a bale of cork. I have found some
sources for this in the past but I need to start looking again.

I don't have access to cypress but I do have red cedar and it's used around
here as fence post. I use it some to mount orchids and other small
epiphytes. This sounds like it could be a good on line web story. oh well
Brian has a wall, I have a tree, what else are you all dreaming of doing to
grow your plants in an attractive manner and if you are doing it already,
where are the picture. I think a page which shows members plant displays
would stir interest in the plants. Those of us in temperate to down right
frozen areas of the country, need to create the look of the tropics in our
own environment.

Any more ideas on this subject will be grateful.
