    Jeff did install the plant in a proper way. I wouldn't change it now and move the plant. Let it grow one more pseudo bulb under the proper conditions.
    Next year he can make 3 or 4 plants out of the one he has now and try with one small division the mounting.
    Good professional growers use the wooden baskets for proper development. I would use stone gravel and course bark to stabilize the plant.
