are established orchids with roots attached to the mounts. We hold all of our
orchids in our greenhouses until the roots grow onto whatever mounting media
they are tied. Once they are attached, they are put on this page for sale. Not
a day sooner. Our orchids on mounts selections may be tied to cork bark, hickory
bark, crape myrtle, or persimmon. We also recycle imperfect hosiery to tie on
The hosiery is soft and does not cut into the delicate orchid plant material. As the hosiery ages, it disintegrates. Some mounts may be tied on with monofilament or black string. Orchids on mounts.

Mounted Orchid Care and Cultural Tips from Seagrove Orchids
Mounted orchids require watering on a more regular basis. Most of our orchids are mounted directly to the mounting material or have a small amount of moss attached to the mount to hold a little bit of moisture between watering's. Most mounted orchids are going to dry quickly after watering and will need to be watered thoroughly once they become dry. A general rule of thumb is to water your mounted orchids two to three times weekly to ensure they have enough moisture to grow expertly and be happy in their grow environment. Observe that orchid roots are white when they are dry and green or red when they are wet. Apply water generously to the root mass so that the roots are green or red and you will know your orchid is accepting water. Fertilizer can be applied about every 2-3 weeks, after a thorough watering.
When choosing a type of wood to use for mounting your orchids, choose wood that is long lasting so it can provide a home for your orchid for many years. Cork, Crepe Myrtle, Sassafras, Cyprus, Hickory, and Persimmon are a few we have used at Seagrove Orchids with success. Old grapevine adds character and interest to the mount. Choose a mount large enough for years of growth. Also, orchids that remain more compact are better suited to mount culture.
Once you decide on your orchid orientation to your mount, there are many materials you can use to attach your orchid. Monofilament, thread, and old hosiery work just fine. I have best success with the old hosiery because it breaks down within years and is soft to the orchid growths.
How long will it take for my orchids to attach to its new mount home? If your orchid is in new growth, you should see it attach within weeks. If not, it can take months for the new orchid to attach. Be patient!!
Temperatures and light will depend on the species or hybrid you are growing. Most plants will appreciate lower light and moderate temperatures for the first few weeks after mounting to avoid stress. After that, you will need to adjust for the culture of specific plants.
