If I was growing in a terrarium this wouldn't be a concern.

Subrosa, would you be willing to sell a few of those hickory bark slabs you have to anyone interested on here that has had trouble locating these?
I prefer to trade in situations like this, and I have a couple pieces available. Plus I have a large amount of other types of bark suitable for mounting orchids as well. Green ash in particular has a very similar texture. I didn't realize bark was so difficult for some to come by. I'll definitely get myself organized and list some in the classifieds.

Does anybody know an alternative for Hickory bark? I already read that cork is not a good choice due to its water-repelling surface which dries way too fast for bare-root mounts.
In europe, there are no native Hickory trees, so I am searching for something similar. What I found are:
-willow
-summer lilac
-elder
-black locust

Any chance of those working?

So, here is what I went with:
Hickory bark for mounting Dendrophylax lindenii-20210509_152551-jpg

It is a piece of young black locust bark because I couldn't get my hands on anything different (no freshly fallen branches of an oak tree avaiable). BUT it could also be an older branch of an ash tree. The fallen branch lay directly between them and without leaves or flowers, they are very hard to tell apart, so if this works I cannot recommend any of the two.
