Ghost Orchid Dendrophylax lindenii

Hi there!

I am preparing to try my hand at the Ghost Orchid, Dendrophylax lindenii. I purchased a flask of seedlings (3-5 total) and I'm looking for advise from anyone who has had luck with them.

Currently I have set up a terrarium-like enclosure for them with volcanic rock with an inch of water and Spanish moss sitting on top of the rocks, letting this sit for a few days before they arrive to get a sense of the humidity.

Im currently planning on leaving them in the flask for a few days to let them acclimate to the new lighting before mounting them and placing them on top of the Spanish moss- suspended above on a piece of hickory bark that has been sitting outside for about a year (has some moss growing on it).

Any advice on mounting these little guys? And any other tips would be appreciated!

Thanks!

J
