    It is mounted on local blueberry stick. I cut down some tall blueberry bushes in my woods and I have been using them for miniature/small orchids, and I am happy with this free mounting material.

    That's a nice display, Tom. I love the blueberry sticks, too.

    Beautiful white! Are the leaves supposed to be spotted? Pretty cool if they are.

    Thanks, Tom. We don't have blueberry around here but I am always on the lookout for free (or really cheap) mounting material.

    What's the dimension of that stick? I thought I had this plant, probably due to a previous photo of yours again... But it's not listed in the database. Gotta go look for spotted leaves.

    Thank you all!

    Pook, the plant is about 4" tall and clumping. The stick is about 1.5" wide and less than 4" tall

    I do have one! It's a division of Marni's 'Stoney Point' and it's in spike!
