Planting Orchids on Trees

Planting orchids might not be that difficult after all.  What you need is air, a tree or a dried up coconut or sphagnum moss.  Then tie down your plants to the tree using a strip of old hosiery or panty hose making for a tight airy fit.  Rainwater can sift through yet it holds the plant in place.  You can add a tad of dirt and sphagnum moss to the pocket surrounding the plant.  You can also use a flexible plastic matting as well.  Once the plant has attached its roots the matting and/or hosiery can also be removed.
