Haa, haaa... Now that you mentioned it.

They grow on trees much like staghorn ferns or bird's nest fern. I like the way Charles Alford in the USA grow them on fern tree bark. Problem is I can't find a fern tree bark in Malaysia big enough to do how they did it. His website is at http://www.rareferns.com/. Below is a picture from his site.
