Re: [Aroid-l] Totem from chick.wire+sphagnum.

for excruciatingly neat totems, you can get baled greed sphagnum from places like Mosser Lee, and pick and choose the best green large sheets of it. there is also our old friend, thin nylon monofilament, which visually disappears, and can be used to wrap.
you can also get a piece of PVC pipe and drill a bunch of holes in it, the way large drainage pipes are made, and wrap the sphagnum around it, securing it with the nylon monofilament, (after soaking the moss and  squeezing the water out). and then giving the whole thing a haircut with scissors for neatness in public display, if that matters. you can water it through the pipe, which I forgot to mention, at the top is left open. you can always practice and take it apart and reuse the materials until you get them very well made. this kind requires no chickenwire. Many people have a fear of chickenwire.
