It is not a dweller of the Congo! A lot of South America is covered with hot 
dry forest. For Pamianthe I would use a really big tray as for Worsleya and 
use a mix of orchid fiber and bark with some leafmould on top and not soil 
at all. Provided one can give the plants warmth the year round  and a dryish 
winter at 18-20C,  summers in the 30s over C would be O. K.And yes the roots 
are made to be exposed therefore anoxia would be fatal.
