As for not wanting to repot, I just thought I might be able to monitor the roots better if I could see them. I'm taking care of my first mounted orchid (Dendrobium) and I must say I'm really enjoying being able to see almost everything that's going on. That being said, I wouldn't have it that way permanently so I've repotted it. Hopefully it will be fine
Your plants and your home are very beautiful!

I like the way mounted Phals look but I don't have the humidity.
I really like this method and I definitely plan to implement it from now on! I think in the past I've been too hasty to pot it back up immediately. Letting it heal is smart.
