Default Epiphyte Branch 38"

Epiphyte Branch 38"

I'm working on a new epiphyte branch setup. I'm going to plant this one mainly just with ferns and Peperomia.

I started out with a shape carved from pink foam insulation, coated with a layer of Vivarium Works casting epoxy (Vivarium Works Online Shop). The tip of the branch is a short piece of natural Manzanita.



A single layer of Hygrolon (https://www.glassboxtropicals.com/Hy...grosheetsm.htm) was attached to the branch top surface with Gorilla Glue. This won't hold a lot of moisture for plants, but I can affix each plant with a pad of Hygrolon or sphagnum for additional water retention.



It's a rather distinct line along the edge of the Hygrolon. I think I might add a curving strip of tree fern fiber glued in place to soften that.

The branch seems thick in diameter, but maybe it will scale well with somewhat larger plants.

I'll add some more details as I get this thing positioned in the tank and planted.
