Dear Jacob,

This is exactly how H. calyptratum grows in the wild.  I have seen
mature bulbs growing on moss covered trunks of trees in the forest in
Brazil. The roots formed extensive  thick carpets about two feet long
and at least one foot wide if not bigger. So looking at your picture I
think your plant will soon need "repotting" in the sense to attach its
piece of cork on a far bigger one. Your method looks very sucessful
indeed and thank you for sharing!
