I am really impressed with this mounting material recommended by Ursula! Comes in baskets too. Check out this phal.

Hi Kathy, Does the Epiweb hold any water, or does it just run off?

There was some legal wrangling going on with the originator of the Epiweb and Ray calls his product now Ecoweb. I am still used to calling it Epiweb, and Ray never took this page down either.
Here is another link
http://www.firstrays.com/ecoweb.htm

Whatever the name, I like it for a lot of Orchids. Cattleyas grow right into it, actually I think it works best on all Orchids with fat roots.
Moisture holding properties are not too different from Tree fern. My benches would bend if I pot on into huge clay-pots, these Eco/Epiweb baskets are nice and light. And aside from picking up some baskets here and there, I buy the large slab and cut it to size for mounting small Orchids.

Outstanding post, I became aware of Epi-web sometime back and saw right away it was something to be noted. At the time it was not available in the U.S. Hurray! Awesome, say good by to tree fern bark.

Did I mention that I love this stuff ? Great for simulating tree forms in a green house or eco-environment. Thank You Ursula Hurray!

I agree Thanks for the tip, I tell folks about it everywhere I go. At the Amherst Show I brought a chunk to show Keith.

Can it only be purchased at shows? I didn't see any way to order it from the web link Confused

I always order from their website, never had a problem. It always comes promptly within a couple of days with email confirmation and notice when shipped.
And no, I don't have stock with them... Smiling

I went through a bunch of links to a "send an email" instruction that opened an email form with: raybark@firstrays.com as the address and "EcoWeb Panel Info Request" as the subject. It was for a large panel though.
