About 3/4 of all orchids on planet earth grow in trees or on other plants. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn the process for mounting orchid and tillandsia plants, best materials on which to mount and the relationship between it and the plant, and best care practices for mounted plants.
Like Bonsai, there are rewards for those who are patient! Our favorites mount in the nursery, we have been working on for over 12 years! It now includes over 10 different species of orchids and tillandsias. The roots have grown and wrapped around the trunk. Truly a living sculpture!
Included with your $15 workshop fee, we will provide a piece of hardwood (madrone for example) for mounting, as well as all other supplies needed (except for the plant). You may bring an orchid from home to mount or purchase some here at the nursery (at 15% off!).
