I use a ceramic pot, I also use the traditional Japanese method. (Google: Traditional Japanese Neofinetia falcata potting) You will find the method a short distance down the page. Basically it is a hollow ball of Spahg with more sphag over the roots. The plant sits above the rim of the pot. by almost an inch. I water 3X per week. I use the top of a beer bottle as my form.
