Many years ago I think it was Dewey Fsik who published an article in Aroideana about constructing totems for aroids to attach to. It involves bending an 18" X 4' long or so strip of 1/2" mesh 'chicken' wire around a piece of lumber 4" X 4" in dia, joining the ends together by bending over the little pieces of wire over the opposite sides, then packing sphagnum into this square 'tube' using a broom stick or something like that. The tightly packed sphagnum within the wire 'tube' was good for the roots to grow into. You keep it watered if tou have irri. by placing a thin irri. drip tube at the top of the totem, or just pour water into the top daily to keep the sphagnum moist and attractive to the roots.
Good Growing,


I use 1/4 inch hardware cloth stuffed with wet sphagnum. I secure the<br>&gt;cylinder with plastic airplane ties and affix it to a redwood 1 x 2 stake. Works<br>&gt;great.<br>&gt;<br>&gt;Ed<br>&gt;_______________________________________________<br>&gt;Aroid-l mailing list<br>&gt;Aroid-l@gizmoworks.com<br>&gt;http://www.gizmoworks.com/mailman/listinfo/aroid-l<br>
