    This came is a basket and has been growing well for a couple of years. But I am thinking of mounting it on tree fern this year. Is anyone else growing this one?

    That is quite pretty, does it have a fragrance?

    I see some of the stems have wondered out the pot. Instead of "repotting" to a mount, why not just stick the basket to a mount and let the stems wander out and attach themselves? Then sever the attached stems from the basket and see if any of the back-bulbs produce new leads and start the process over again.
