    Igor, that will be many years from now for it to out-grow that mount if it will ever get that big...
    It isn't a difficult species to grow if you grow it under intermediate temperature, good water and good humidity with some air movement. Normally you can get a small seedling(6-8 growths/leaves) for $25 at show from some south american growers but check on the plant condition carefully before you pay for it.

    I always love to see this beauty: good water is a must, I had water my less than I should and almost lost it, but it is OK now.

    You probably should not keep it wet either. I water mine when treefern mount/moss is approaching dry. Besides good water, humidity is another important element for this species.
