just curious, what was the yakuza method?
true, P. reichenbachiana is getting rare in the wild, but hopefully not extinct yet. from your pix its not clear if its a reichenbachiana, the lip looks almost too round, where as it should be triangular on the end, like an arrow.
otherwise its a P.fasciata.
your plant seems very healthy and mounting is probably a better choice for you. so you just wait for a keiki (baby plant) to get a few healthy roots, either cut it off the spike, or twist it off, and its ready for mounting or potting. you could use coconut chips, charcoal and styrofoam pieces to mix it up.
