Default Renanthera monachica

Bought this one also at the show in Valencia (8 plants in total). I must admit that I'm a bit an impulsive buyer. First I buy what I like and then start wondering if I can give it what she needs.
For now I've got her in a little plastic basket without any medium. I'm planning on hanging her outside from a tree in my garden. Any culture tips are more than welcome.

Bright and beautiful flowers.
These are endemic to the Philippines which is an equatorial zone....
They grow clinging on trees so you must give it a bit of media to cover the roots.
I have this exact orchid(look at my past thread) and I put a bed of coconut fiber at the bottom of the wooden basket as I anchored the roots to make the plant stable as I sprinkled around it large media mix composed of lava rock, bark, charcoal, hydroton and sponge rock.
