    ok time for good advice
    Remove that plant from that tree fern
    Remove the flower spike
    Remove any dead roots and old sphagnum if thats wat it is.....
    Soak in a good fertilizer with a seaweed extract for 15 mins
    Plant has poor flowering and looks a little dehydrated
    now u can put in a pot with medium-fine gravel and charcoal ank keeep much more humid than present
    water as soon as needed usually twice a day with that media..keep in a relatively semi shaded cool location like where phals grow.....
    Sorry for being an ass but i have lots of experience with this species as it is a native weed of citrus orchards in my country and have been growing them since like 9 years old

    Sorry to say it, but I can see why King Kjeldz is concerned. The mount and sphagnum seem to have a type of black/green algae that I have seen before. That combined with the shriveled psuedobulbs makes me think that your water and/or humidity might be a problem. Something that I like to see is live moss. It indicates good water quality and an agreeable humidity. I agree with King that it needs to be removed from the mount. If you can, gently clean the roots. I think his method of gravel and charcoal may work (I'm thinking he is using a clay pot) but I have seen these grown well mounted also. Good luck with it and keep us informed.

    a plastic pot could be used also as the media is fairly coarse it may help retain a little moisture and raise humidity a smidget in a drier area...where they are found is veryyy humid and buoyant...with breezes...dappled light more on the shady side

    Thank you for advice king. I agree. Humidity is very bad in our area now ~10%. I have added some more sphagnum moss on the tree fern before I saw your post . I will try to repot it this weekend.
