It doesn't have to be mounted. It can be grown potted.
If you want to grow it in a basket, that's fine. I'd lose the moss though. Just use the medium grade bark and water when dry.
Moderate humidity is fine. In fact, if the humidity is higher, you can get away with watering far less.
You can also use a clear plastic pot and use medium grade bark and water when dry, it works just the same.
Moderate indirect light.
Intermediate to warm growing (55 F - 95 F). I know the Internet Orchid Encyclopedia says cool to warm, but the concern about growing them cool, (the cool temperature range to me is when the temperature can get between 40 F - 54 F), is the problem with leaf spotting, (when I say leaf spotting, I mean the spots can sometimes be the size of a pencil eraser), and other various cold related issues. I had this problem when I grew Gastrochilus japonicum on the cool side. In hindsight, I should've grown it intermediate to warm. Oh well, live and learn.
