Thanks Ray,

I will try this today.
You are right, the pot is in a non-self-draining pot.

What mix of dirt/bark/anything else do I need?

many thanks.

I just use medium Orchid Bark chips. Fine stuff or dirt holds too much
moisture and can rot the roots. Your plant doesn't need any dirt ...
just enough chips or bark to keep it upright in the pot.

Good luck!
