Welcome! murmaid.

You can use wire or zip ties; the plant will eventually attach itself and you can then remove the zipties or wire, unless the plant has grown over them in which case it's ok to leave them. Put some Sphagnum moss between the plant and the tree to help it get established.

Hi and welcome to ATP!

Here's a link to an article from our very own drdawg. Everything you need to know!
"The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country. "
