    Has anyone tried to mount African violets?
    I have alot of micro mini sinningia seedlings(85+) and was wondering if I should try to mount them and how to. Any ideas?

    Are African violets epiphytic? The orchids that are mounted grow on trees in nature (epiphytes) or on rocks (lithophytes). These respond well to being mounted in collections.

    I'm not sure but they grow among moss so I was wondering if they could. Since they are seedlings maybe they could adjust to the condition.

    Jai- if you have 85 plus plantlets growing, why not give it a try. I have seen the min's growing out of egg shells and the do really well. Also have seen them growing in moss. Give it a try.
