    I found a blooming Dracula. Unfortunately, it was on the north wall with a lot of hanging draculas to the south, so all of the buds are facing backwards. Not what I had envisioned when I mounted it. I'll relocate it when I put it back tomorrow. It is on cork with a some NZ sphagnum on top of the roots.

    Oh-la-la..... VERY NICE!! How often do you have to water your mounted dracs?
    I had to try it so I mounted a D. sibundoyensis yesterday... But on Epiweb with some Sphagnum.

    I water them most every day. I don't let the moss go crispy and they are in a very humid pocket of air in the greenhouse. Let us know how it goes. I'm still having trouble with the esthetics of epiweb, but I'm working up to trying it.
