This is 'My Big Red'. Its about a year old. Some one had asked for new ideas for hanging plants. Not sure if there is any value to this. Maybe needs more work.

That is one of the most healthiest epis I've seen. That's a very neat concept. Someone had posted a similar concept but it was with hoyas. Thumbs up

Is that a tomato cage. I've seen those used before but that's the first one I've seen hanging. Is that a 2 gallon pot? Now I just have to worry about the weight and space.

I grow some of mine that way too, but they are sitting on the floor instead of hanging. They get huge!

Mike 1 gal. but I've used larger for different applications. This one is lighter than many of my baskets, probably soil mixture. I hung it up for easier access for picture.

Becky It also sits on ground but for picture. I hope to get blooms in spring and then decide if I want to pursue further.

Looks like a great idea! I may try it with some of the cuttings you sent to me. They are growing like wild but haven't bloomed yet. Maybe this year.
