    These small plants I grow along with Phalaenopsis plants, often hung into baskets of they. This is hanging on P.parishii .

    Wonderful plant. Is it moist most of the time?

    @Marni
    This roots must be in relatively short time dry.
    I do 1x daily complete watering now in winter and it is complete dried-up before next watering. Some plants are nearby radiator, so that humidity is relatively low at short time after watering. Before watering is drop humidity up to 50% over radiator sometimes ! ! !
    Except heating period are these plants more damp of course. But if are this plants for ever soaked, leaves will drop in very short time. Very good air-movement is urgent in this time.

    Thanks, Milan. I don't grow this species, but others in the genus I have do dry. Yours looks so good, but with moss, I wanted to be sure. I'll be looking to add this one to me plants.
