  1. Hi folks i have seen most members mounting their ant plants mostly on bark, a few on wooden plank or fern bark. What i have not seen are people mounting them on driftwood. And so that led me to wonder how the roots of ant plants work. Is it possible to mount them on driftwood? Will their roots take onto the driftwood or they will only penetrate bark as it's more porous? But if so then what about those that i have seen mounted on planks? I have an ant plant that i bought which was already grown onto a piece of wooden plank but i can't really tell how the root work on it. Can the good folks here enlighten me on how their roots work and be able to offer me advice on how you mount them on cork bark? Much apppreciated.
