Loving plants and flowers too much, number of pots grows unconsciously, and it is not easy to find a place to store. Especially plants not hard for coldness are cumbersome to be brought indoor during winter.
Last year, I tried to plant an epiphytic orchid on a live tree. The orchid is Japanese Vanda suppose to be relatively hard to coldness and dryness. In case it may fail, I split the stock in half and used one of the halves. Wrapping sphagnum around a tree trunk, I bound the orchid onto it. There was no sign of dying as time passed. Recently, I was please to find roots started to grip into tree skin after I didn't looked at it carefully for a while. When shaking it, I felt stayed firmer without cranking than I expected.

More surprising thing is there were three flower stems growing.

Hopefully it will stay, but I can't be too relaxed because I heard that the flowering is an activity to create descendants when a stock is in danger.
I ask a frog to watch it carefully. lol
By comparison, the remaining half was put on fern trunk, but it does not grow very well.
