I just mounted some staghorn ferns and have been reading that Hoyas can also be mounted. I recently picked up a lipstick plant, and while I can't find any information on whether this genus (or whatever) can be mounted, I'm wondering if it's a safe assumption that as an epiphyte, mounting would be viable.

    Are you asking about hoyas or lipstick plants?

  • Some orchids do well on wood ,others do not seem to; I think you would need to research each one. I have some "ground" orchids that I doubt would do well. Jan 21 '21 at 21:49

So I went ahead and mounted a lipstick plant. It's been almost a week and it seems to be doing alright, with some noticeable growth since mounting. will update in a few months in case anyone's interested

lipstick plant
