This orchid does not like direct sunlight as it could scorch its leaves, a lightly shaded spot with filtered sunlight will be fine. 
To successfully grow Trichoglottis brachiata, you have a few options. You can place it in a small 2 to 3-inch basket, either bare-root like Vanda orchids or mounted if you have a humid environment and can water them daily.
Alternatively, you can plant it in a pot with well-draining bark. This substrate will retain moisture around the roots, reducing the need for daily watering. Spraying or misting the roots on hot days can also promote faster growth and more abundant blooming.
