Truthfully I’ve gotten great results with pvc coated metal wire, super solid and not going to bend or fall over.
Bought this from Amazon and I’ve been giving away moss poles because of how much I have left over. (8 moss poles later and I’ve barely used the roll)

I have the same setup in my living room and this is the humidifier I have. It sits on my clothing-rack-turned-plant-stand and all of my plants are happy. I run it from 10 am - 11 pm usually and have to refill every 2 or 3 days. It’s definitely cheap but it works; I’ve had it for probably 2 years now. It’s a great little humidifier to start with; lately the motor has been loud when I first turn it on (it quiets down after 15 seconds) and I keep thinking I’ll invest in a nicer, top-filling humidifier when it finally dies on me but it just keeps chugging along. Also, it’s pretty easy to clean! I use tap water in it so it gets buildup after a couple of months but it’s super easy to wipe down with some vinegar.
get some chunky orchid bark, https://www.amazon.com/Sun-Bulb-50000-Special-4-Quart/dp/B00KWXTH36/ref=sr_1_17?dchild=1&keywords=phalaenopsis+orchid+mix&qid=1610811626&sr=8-17 like this and mix it with just 20% soil, your mix must be retaining too much moisture. It should hold some, but also the roots need a lot of air, chunky mix will provide the air and dry out quicker.
I had these two shitty but extremely bright and powerful no-name brand from amazon that i was using. They made my tent much hotter than I wanted them to despite their low consumption (40w x2 = 80w). They were putting out about 500-1000 footcandles canopy and directly under light placements. I was talking to a grower on IG about lighting not so long ago, and realized I was basically nuking my plants with microwave level brightness, so I took one light down and the tent's temps are doing much better. If you're interested in which one I use, it's these ones
Definitely this one: https://www.amazon.com/LEVOIT-Humidifiers-Ultrasonic-Humidifier-Whisper-Quiet/dp/B01MYGNGKK/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=levoit+lv600hh&qid=1621277771&sr=8-2
It's so easy to clean! There's a reason most plant people end up with this model.
I use this every other watering, at half strength (3-4 drops instead of 7)
I also top dress with this, also at half recommended strength.
I have mine potted at one end of this, and it's been doing a great job of creeping right along!
I have this one and I love it. It's a good size for one large room, but would need something larger or a second unit for a whole floor.
I've tried water, aroid soil and perlite with and without rooting hormone and got the best results by far (stem cuttings, top cuttings and wet sticks) using pure perlite with some rooting hormone dissolved in water on a tray with a humidity dome over. I used something similar to this: https://www.amazon.com/TCBWFY-Humidity-Plastic-Greenhouse-Extension/dp/B09TQWKYZ5 It's easy to diy something else as long as you make sure there's ventilation! On a large plant saucer/tray I placed clear plastic cups (reuse and then recycle!) without drainage holes and filled them with perlite (and put in the cuttings). I then poured the rooting solution about 1/3rd of the way up and maintained that level until the roots reached the water level, at which point I stopped refilling it and just made sure the perlite was nice and moist. I'd still recommend drainage holes though if you're not comfortable with this method, I just wanted to monitor the pots as little as possible :)
I think the setup you have right now looks great!.
Spectrally speaking, it’s decent.
However, I do not trust nor purchase lights which have zero information on output intensity. This information is usually hidden for a reason.
For the almost the same price, you could purchase a single light which will cover hundreds. And these fixtures always have their output details.

This is the light I’m using in a small grow tent. So it’s only on about five plants. Before I have always just kinda winged it when it comes to grow lights. I have so many different kinds and sometimes it’s obvious whether it’s really strong or not strong. But I’m pretty new to anthuriums. So I may have been placing the lights too close or on for too long.
Hey! I’ve got a new 100w 150 Leds LED bulb light and I was wondering how far should I place it from my Queen(Warocqueanum).

I think most hardware stores carry decent ones, mine looks like it's price jumped. Still worth it, I use it every week moisturemeter
Honestly not sure for that plant specifically but if it looks happy otherwise in the water, I'd leave it. I like to gamble with rooting hormone/liquid prop fertilizer or whatever but im absolutely no expert. My momstera is in just distilled Water, but my pothos is recovering quickly and growing new roots in the root hormone water.
This is what I used but id look into what would be best for your specific plant

This is it!

Light intensity decreases the further it is away from the plant so it’s possible your plants are too far or your light is too weak. You may have to double up on bring them closer while watching it closely for burn. I have this one in my ikea cabinet with the plants being about 6in or so away from the light and it has only been a couple weeks so I’ll have to wait and see. I have my succulents about 4in away from these same lights and they’re super happy. Hope that helps!

I would take it out of its substrate immediately, like ASAP, to check the roots and let them breathe. If it's been that wet since you've received it, the roots could be suffocating ESPECIALLY if you've had a humidifier on it. Substrates will not dry quick enough when a plant is in lower light, cooler temperature, and extremely high humidity. Doesn't matter if you have a mix and pot ready to go for it, just take it out and gently check the roots and let them breathe a bit. If you don't have anything ready to repot, just do the un-potting and after checking, loosely place the substrate back over the roots so they don't desiccate but dry a bit.
I don't use net pots, just these clear plastic orchid pots: https://www.amazon.com/Orchid-Cymbidium-Phalaenopsis-Indoor-Plastic/dp/B07CBJGG3W/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=orchid%2Bpots%2Bwith%2Bholes&qid=1602515275&sprefix=orchid%2Bpots%2Bwit&sr=8-6&th=1&psc=1
And this bark exclusively (cheap Home Depot kind of orchid bark breaks down way too fast and eventually suffocates roots through compaction) I'd recommend small size chips since you have a seedling:
And chunkiest perlite and small chip charcoal (aquarium not horticultural, they're not equal) to throw in.
I'd avoid work castings because they keep everything too wet and have a higher rate of introducing pathogenic bacteria/fungus, especially if you can't trace where they came from or if you're not using a freshly opened bag.
This is my first Anthurium. I mostly have philodendron. My ambient humidity is 40%, but I finally bit the bullet and bought a humidifier. The plant was a little leggy and my humidity is low right now. I packed sphagnum around the stem and it's growing in a chunky aroid mix.
I live in the PNW and my apartment has massive west windows. It gets fairly intense afternoon sun so I have the plant sitting maybe four feet back from the window.
I fertilize weekly with 3/4 strength orchid feed. I usually water when my top coat of sphag gets crispy.
