Orchid Mounts – Part 2

Part two of Gutter Guard mounts. We were so surprised at how well the terete leaf Dens. grew in the gutter guard mounts, so we decided to try out the twig Sarcochilus and primary hybrids. These responded very well and some were flowering 12 months out of the flask. We now grow all of our possible breeding stock this way. We start all of these seedlings on the small mount and when they get larger we add another section to the bottom of the mount. If you ever have to change the potting mix you just have to take the pot out of the bottom tap the sides and most of the mix comes out, then just replace with the new mix and put the pot back into the bottom and secure.
