    Default onc. tsiku marguerite - appropriate for orchid vivarium? best mounting?

    I am working on a planted vivarium for my bosses office (we will share it ) that will house mourning geckos. My boss has an onc. tsiku marguerite that she bought from a local greenhouse that is not growing well on her desk and we are considering that it might do well in the vivarium, if planted properly.

    Is this orchid appropriate for a planted viv? Where would it do best - I'm thinking NOT in substrate (it likes its roots well drained, we've noticed).

    thank you very much in advance for your help. This is my FIRST viv, and I am thinking that cheaper plants may be better "learning" plants and maybe we should save the orchid for another vivarium, later when i have more experience.

    Seems to me if it gets enough light and plenty of air movement it should do well. These have nice p-bulbs so they hold water. This means they will need to dry off between watering or the fine roots will rot away. Onc. Tsiku Marguerite is a very fragrant pink orchid similar to oncidium Twinkle.

    Cheers,
