Default Artificial branches for orchids? We'll see...

As my canopy viv approaches 2 years of age, the original branches are starting to break down, slowly, so I'm thinking about a long term solution.

Obviously my biggest concern is getting something that the orchids will grow on. Ron Rundo at VERY graciously threw together an awesome little sample to see if his material would work.

Super friendly guy, and I love the way the sample turned out. I hope the test orchids like it as much as I do.

Mounted Bulbophyllum formosum and dolichoglottis as test subjects.

How do you envision the orchids staying on long term? Will the roots eventually attach to the artificial branch or will you need to attach them (with fishing line, string, wire or whatever)?
