plant display


I found 2 nice pine branches and hubby hung them for me in our Jungle walk. I now have all those little guys in one place. before I had them in small pots tugged in throughout the yard.

There is a micro sprayer above the branch, set on a timer to come on for 10 minutes in the morning.





I am hoping the mosses and ferns will take over so eventually not much should be seen from the actual branch.

thanks for looking

What a creatively awesome way to display plants – just beautiful. And to have thought of a micro sprayer above the branch is just fantastic. You are so artistic it just blows my mind. Absolutely fabulous.

thanks everyone for your kind words
Calin, why can't you grow orchids?
mocropot, no glue. hubby nailed the two branches together, added hooks and chain and the micro spray head above. I used green floral wire to hold the spagnum moss in place and tucked the plants into the moss. so far so good, it is still holding up nicely

I would like to add some Dischidia plants....
