    I grow a lot of polystachyas, but most of them are potted. I have grown pubescens mounted, I may even still have one out in the greenhouse somewhere on a mount. The minis do well this way. It is going to climb, so give it it enough to accommodate vertical growth. You have great roots coming out now so this is the time to do it. I have used cork with a bit of sphagnum, but I have stopped the sphagnum and now use a pad of coco fiber.
