|This is a little off the beaten track, but here are some examples of the wood mounts I use for my tropicals. Often the mounts are the focal spot rather than the plants. The mounts are approximately 14" x 20" and I have some smaller and some larger, but most are of cedar, cypress, oak, pine and a few Gulf of Mexico driftwoods of some other exotic wood.
I use a 2-part epoxy to seal one surface and the epoxy really makes the wood color and grain "pop". The cured epoxy also seals the surface from UV and moisture for decades.

|I am new to some of the different aerophytes but am surprised to see the surface coated with epoxy.
I can see it would make the display more permanent but always assumed these plants' roots would delve into the surface of the wood. Apparently I was wrong.
Do I see that you drill the holes in these displays for the plant roots?
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.
Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.
