    This is pure ehiphyte. The best used tree barks or cutting woods and cover with sphag. at the root level.They hated stagnant condition and refused to grow. Another alternative use floral foam and cut into squares or rectangles to allow good drainage probably will help for you. I will demonstrate to you later.
