Floral Mounting Line

Clear nylon monofilament line for mounting plants

Floral Mounting Line
NEHERP Staff Description:
Just about every Orchid enthusiast has seen clear nylon fishing line used to mount a plant to a surface (often cork or tree fern panels). Our line is a super light gauge that's perfect for plant mounts, training delicate vines, and more. If you'll be using this product in a vivarium containing live animals, be sure to not leave any partial loops or gaps behind the lines uncovered, since little critters can get hung-up if it's not used carefully. 2400' rolls.

Floral Mounting Toothpicks

Everyday toothpicks are one of the easiest methods of mounting a plant to a surface!

Floral Mounting Toothpicks
One of the easiest methods for mounting plants to a background surface. These are the thicker (square center) picks that won't break as easily as the cheap "tiny box" type from a grocery store. (Cheaper, too!) Cut off the ends of the picks once they are inserted into the background to make them as close to invisible as possible. You can "Crisscross" the picks to box a plant into a hard-to-mount place, or keep it simple by pinning the plant back. To help customers figure out how to mount plants using these, we've included a few freshly planted pictures below. (Click to view)

NEHERP Plant Mounting Kit

Our discounted package of plant mounting favorites!

Terrarium Plant Mounting Kit Terrarium Plant Mounting Kit Terrarium Plant Mounting Kit
Terrarium Plant Mounting Kit Terrarium Plant Mounting Kit Terrarium Plant Mounting Kit
Our Terrarium Plant Mounting Kit includes everything necessary to get plants placed exactly where you'll want them within an enclosure. We put this together based on how we build vivariums in-house. The manageable 4in sections of flexible, cuttable mounting wires are ready for immediate use on very large plants, or to be further cut-down & shaped to create mounting & training clips. It's easy to shape them by hand, and perfect for every job from mounting large Bromeliads to training ultra-delicate vines & trailing plants onto backgrounds. The small wood picks are free in this pack, and are perfect for pinning plants wrapped in Sphagnum and/or NEHERP moss onto backgrounds, cork decor, tree fern, and more. As simple as it seems, they are a really convenient solution in tough-to-reach backgrounds. We've also included 16oz of dried AAA-Grade New Zealand Sphagnum Moss, which expands significantly in water. (We recommend only hydrating a little at a time!) These three things are the same we use in-house at NEHERP when we build enclosures, and we're confident that they'll help get your vivarium planted right. Different styles of building can vary greatly, but we'd estimate each kit should probably be more than enough to mount plants in even a very large enclosure. For most applications, this pack will last through multiple vivarium builds. Check out our Vivarium Articles & Image Gallery to see examples of how we've used this kit.

The ferns & (non-slurry) Moss were lightly wrapped around Sphagnum Moss for moisture retention, and each section was pinned using wooden picks. The hanging plants were each wrapped in Sphagnum Moss, and pinned in place by wire clips.

Plant Mounting Wire

Our original, super-easy floral mounting solution!

Terrarium Plant Mounting Wire Terrarium Plant Mounting Wire
Our textured floral mounting wire has been used by the hobby since 2010, with popularity increasing every year. Mounting wire can be used to mount many different types of plants to backgrounds, hardscape decor, and more. It's flexible enough to bend by hand, soft enough to cut with sharp scissors (or a wire cutter), and rigid enough to be poked into cork & poly foam backgrounds. It's also ideal for training plants to grow onto certain surfaces, and works great in combination with either of our background kits and included texture mix. Use Sphagnum Moss to wrap the roots of non-epiphytic plants, to allow for plenty of moisture retention. It's green, matte texture blends into backgrounds seamlessly, and can be further disguised with a little NEHERP Moss, if desired. These can naturally break down & dissolve after 10-24 months (depending on humidity), which leaves plenty of time for any plant to grow it's own supporting roots.
Please mount carefully! In most cases, the ends of these will be pushed into a surface. If not, please be sure to protect your vivarium's inhabitants by trimming/hiding any sharply cut ends.
