ever try growng tese guys


you don't have to put them in the ground just a small plastic jar wired off a branch...with holes in it crushed leaves in the bottom so they can get out. spring hatching of 2 weeks of above 60F signals them out.

Not sure about the airborne plant you showed but many can grow in near nothing like soil. Orchids, for example, do poorly in soil and need lots of air around roots and themselves. Obviously without water from the soil they need humid environments. Some decorative mosses used in landscaping are not quite so fussy.

As for the bug. The things sill freak me out when I see them suddenly but praying mantis are master predators. They will not ever sting or bite us but are one of the best friends your garden can ever have. They just look creepy.
