Dear Steve,

I have NOT been ignoring your posts, but it has been a busy week!
Congrats on a fantastic job VERY well done!   You are not ''nuts''!  Your excitement on seeing this dream come true is palpable in your notes, and you deserve to feel that way!    The ''tree'' is indeed a thing of beauty, and will only get better as you add further to the plants on it, and when they ''grow in'' to their new home it will be even MORE wonderful!
Again, congratulations on a fantastic display.


> We've added about 50 plants so far including one Anthurium.  If you're interested in seeing the progress check the link.  I have two garden clubs coming to see it tomorrow and Saturday so I've got workers coming tonight to add as many more orchids, bromeliads, ferns and vines as possible.  One more Anthurium sent by Harry will go up as well.  By the way, Windy, the Anthurium at the top left is one you gave me!

> I know everyone on this forum knows what an epiphyte is but many people think plants only grow in soil. For a long time I've wanted to be able to demonstrate epiphytic growth to the people who visit our ExoticRainforest and my crazy dream just began to come true!
> For 8 years I've been wanting to build an epiphytic plant display and finally we have it under way!  Within the next few weeks we will have more than 100 epiphytic plants including orchids, Bromeliad species, Anthurium, Philodendron, ferns, Epiphyllum species and many more growing on an artificially produced tree!  If you'd enjoy seeing our new display, which is still under construction, click this link:
