Mounting a Staghorn

The fern was planted in a hanging pot when I purchased it – not ideal as they are epiphytic. Rinsed as much soil off the roots as I could. Had this cool metal “basket” I’ve never put to good use, so I made a nest of re-hydrated, long-fiber sphagnum moss. The Staghorn was placed on top, making sure the shield fronds would point up once hung. More sphagnum moss was placed around whatever soil was exposed and I wrapped the whole thing with fish line.
