    Question- what medium would you use to repot one into a basket like this? Would you use medium at all? For instance, I just put my BC Maikai into a basket with nothing at all, and it's doing very well with daily watering and weekly fertilizing.

      Thank you for the complimentary comments. Have to give a lot of credit to our fine weather in Hawaii. Most orchids do very well here.
