    Very Nice! I actually got one of these two weeks ago. It is mounted on very smooth hardwood and with the fine roots I thought it would be better on cork. It is very small, has no roots to speak of, does not appear to even have a lead and was very expensive so any help would be much appreciated!

    In my opinion, I think it is better to mount it on the cork, is more porous, and the opportunity to hold on, retains moisture, to my I put a little musk, retains moisture, but does not stay wet like sphagnum, the cultivate in position of shadow, fertilization 1/2, (150ppm) twice a month 20:20:20. and every two months fertilization with calcium nitrate (150ppm), RH (relative humidity) 70% - 80%, ventilation, keep in mind that where ur dress in certain periods is very low, 20%, is of relatively slow growth, not I noticed rest, it is in its five years.
    If you need more ask.

    Thank you Elio, I will move it to cork. 5 years is a long time for a plant that size. I will ask.
