    Your PM was correct. just make a hole to fit the roots, set them in there push the media back around the plant. As far as the lamp, it should be fine. But a window would work too.

    if it was bareroot, give them a few days/weeks.

    Also the best tool I have found for potting small plants and seedlings is a pencil. The sharp end makes a nice hole, and the eraser makes nice work of pushing the media back in place.

    tangle the roots gently in a single strand of some high quality sphagnum, then plant that in whatever media your using. the roots recover very quickly this way.
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.
