    Default Moving orchid from mount to orchid bark?

    We have a fairly local orchid vendor that has some plants in outa and other mounted to cypress. I'm interested in a Kingidium philippinense which is mounted in cypress and near blooming size. I prefer to grow orchids in pots. Can I successfully pot a mounted orchid ?

    I would recommend you to keep it mounted. I used to grow all of them in pots in the past and tried mounting and they seem to grow better and breath better when mounted.
