    The only thing that comes to mind is maybe submerge/soak the plant every few days so it gets fully hydrated, rather than relying on misting.

    I do it all the time - buy plants on mounts, and know they will languish for me . So I put the whole mount in a pot, and add compost around it. Of course it is sometimes possible to remove the plant from the mount - a rally good soak in warm water for an hour will soften the roots and loosen their grip on the bark or whatever ; and in other cases I cut as much of the mount away as possible, without actually cutting into the plant.
    If the mount is wood , it usually rots in time , and you need to scrape away the rotten part whenever you can ; but pieces of cork, and some hard tree fern, used as mounts, seem to last for ever.

    I have it mounted and it is being grown under lights in doors.

    Mr Dorsetman, sorry I don't know your name. I like your idea but think that the plant may be to far downhill. If I were to follow your suggestion, can you tell me more about the type of media to use? You said compost. ??????

    Call me Geoff.... My general compost, used unless I think something special is needed is just a pine bark/Perlite/Charcoal mix , and that would be fine to fill a pot where a plant on a cork mount is inserted.I think the essence is to have something very well drained, but nevertheless giving a lot mor moisture around the roots than the plant had when the mount was hanging free.
