Very nice! What's the flower size?
Great photos! I have never had lasting success with this species.
It seems indeed hard to keep on the long term. I have a clone from Colombia with bigger, redder flowers, that is still alive with 5 leaves (has been 20+) after 10 years. Two other plants from Ecuador with smaller yellow flowers like this, have grown very well for 2 years but are now seriously on the decline (so tiny, they get suffocated by moss/algae). Amazing fact with that species is it does make "keikies" at the tips of the roots, spreading all over the mount when actively growing!
Interesting! I wonder if it's a good idea to remount them every three years or so.
most probably yes. Unless you manage to keep the sphagnum moss "fresh" for a longer time. In my conditions, its changing to mud after 2 years. Greenhouse centipedes play a big role in this tranformation, sadly.
