Medium with a little perlite & charcoal sounds like a good move , see if you can get it to go dry(light pot) in about 3 days or so.Hold off fertilizing until plant does grow roots.Paphs can be a real pain to get to grow roots but a quicker drying media so you have a quicker wet/dry seems to work for me best.Kep the pot as small as possible as well .
Can you post a picture?
The above is Paph. henryanum re-potted into my medium grade orchid bark mixed with some perlite. I have removed the brown lengths on the larger two leaves - hence why they are truncated. Thankfully the newest growth is not affected.
I have also applied keiki hormone paste to the base of it's puny root system - so hopefully this little plant should gradually start to improve now that it is in a more open media.
