Default Ludisia Discolor Never Rooted

I purchased this orchid maybe over a little over a year ago from a vendor at the Miami Orchid Festival. When I brought it home to repot, to my surprise it didn't have any roots which would be fine if that was how it was advertised, but I was under the impression that I was purchasing an already established orchid. Anyway, I was told you can kinda stick these in some soil and they will grow; honestly I didn't do enough research on this one.

Since then, it has grown new leaves, but quickly dropped them, hanging on for dear life; poor girl! Finally today I pulled up the stems to find it still hasn't rooted; what a surviver! I'm going to do some more researching, but if anyone has some tips on how to get this poor baby that I have sadly neglected to root, I would appreciate your advice.

How is this one going?
What kind of substrate were you using? Maybe it's got some sort of dampening off bacteria that's impeding its ability to root. I wouldn't call you a bad plant're paying attention after all.

I see you have it sticking straight up and down. Have you tried laying in in a little trench on its side instead? Have you tried sphagnum moss (if it's okay to use for Ludisia)? I've rooted some pretty sick rescue orchids using sphagnum moss.

This is a duplicate thread I think.
