Yes, you can attach the orchid to an Oak Tree. The bark is suitable for attachment by an orchid.
Attach to the south side of the tree for good sunlight.
Use a nylon chord to attach the Orchid since it will take up to a year for the roots to attach.
You will need to water and mist the Orchid daily.
Protect the roots with a ball of sphagnum moss. Fertilize the Orchid once a month with a mist of Orchid fertilizer to the roots. Do this during the active growing period.
