Default Trudelia alpina (syn Vanda)

Anyone tell me which would be the best way to grow this little fellow? At
the moment it is in large chunks of bark. Would this do better mounted on a
slab? Can't find a lot of photos or info on this orchid so I'm reaching out
to you guys that have the knowledge.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.....Thanks, Chuck.

Here's a link:
http://www.orchidspecies.com/trudalpina.htm

OrchidWiz calls for it to be grown in a slat basket. Medium is used to
anchor the plant when it is fist mounted in the basket, just like any
vandaceous. You can use cork, rocks, charcoal, etc.

Don't trim the roots. It can take lower temps than many other Vandaceous
species, as low as 39 degrees F. Cut back on water during the winter, but
don't let it shrivel. Pretty little thing.
