That's a cutie. How is it potted?
It's a bark mix. Medium bark from Lowe's I believe, with small Orchiata bark and top dressed with grodan rockwool mini cubes. I used a plastic organizer from Target bathroom section, that I drilled holes in. Inspiration came from Tom Kalina's tray culture method but mine is smaller (4.5" x 9") to conserve space.

The problem I might have with this tray culture is stolonous growths on lots of besseae hybrids! :eek:
Yeah. That makes sense. My main rationale for this one was that it had 10+ growths around 4" in size, and was in a 4" pot. The result I pictured in my head was this amazing plant with 10+ spikes (wish I could share that picture). It's been in this pot since around March 2020 It has about 6 mature growths I'm guessing it will have follow-up spikes over time which will be cool.
