Word of warning, I tried potting mine up in bark like my other Phals, one died and the survivor lost all its in pot roots. Mine seems to be doing better now in a Vanda basket. Monitor it closely, if you make a change.

Hm thanks, I will keep this in mind. I have a plastic pot with holes in the sides which might be a good intermediary. Maybe I'll try watering it a bit more often first in its basket and see what happens.

Did you repot when you got the plant? Mine usually responds with a new leaf after a repotting. I use a chunky bark mix appropriate for phals.

Fishmom, just wanted to let you know I repotted my Siderea a few days ago into a plastic pot (with good size holes on the sides for airflow) with chunky bark so it would stay a little moister and it is already pushing a new root and two new root tips! Now I just have to wait for it to be happy enough to start making leaves and eventually flowers. Thanks for the tips!
