    Wood you pick up on the beach or at rivers and lakes, that's been in the water a long time. Makes great mounting as long as there are no chemicals in the wood.

    you should be able to, the stuff for aquariums is usually well cleaned and chemical free, with an added bonus of being able to stand up well when it comes to moisture

    I miss my 'Sweet Sugar'. It was the first of my plants to bear earned blooms. That certainly is a testament to the fact that they will tolerate and may even love abuse! I have a little 'Twinkle' now that is in about the state of your 'SS'. Maybe I will mount it just to see what happens. Wouldn't be much of a change from the situation its in already, as it is sitting on top of bark with roots just beginning to peek out. I love to mist so it certainly wouldnt be starved for attention. Hope your baby pulls through....I bet it will!

    I'm always amazed plants on sticks grow. lol Especially mine as I tend to get neglectful at times. Some do good, some dont. A wooden basket with some medium may also be a good idea. Misting when transferring I find does a great job, just be careful you have air movement going or you are inviting fungus.

    Some oncids like a more "phal-like" mix. Maybe this one likes a little more water. Some I buy are in spagnum and when I started putting them into fresh spag they began to live longer. lol I'm still working on flowers...but they aren't dying anymore.
