|I just finished making a orchid pot for my "clearance sale" plalaenopsis. I put a thin layer of moss around the chicken wire to keep the bark from falling out.I'll keep an eye on it to make sure it gets good air flow. |

|I like it! It's going to look amazing when it blooms in that planter. Post a pic when it does.|

|That's a neat repurposing of that bark, Heath. |

| What a great idea, and a good eye for seeing the potential of this bark! Love it! I've got a good amount of chicken wire left over from a "moss pole" that I had made for a Pothos. Hmmm, you've got me thinking now!!! for sharing this!|
Looking forward to more pics as it fills in and blooms!

But doesn't every parent think their baby is cute' no matter how ugly? After looking at the price of orchid pots I figured I would try to make one.
