    Well the roots look fine, and it's not doomed if you are going to repot it. But without new green growth it may come to a halt. Certainly keep it under the lights. I hope for the best.
    Have a wonderful day!

    Unfortunately that plant looks very much dead or at least on its way out.... Likely culprit would be root rot, as truncata likes to be kept on the dry side in comparison to most neps and typically likes a more airy mix than a LFS dominant one.

    My recommendation would be equal parts of Perlite/orchid bark/osmunda fiber/LFS and if you’d like, coco coir or charcoal chunks make nice additions to a good epiphyte mix as well.

    Update: the plant is pretty much dead now. It has the slightest bit of green, but the stem is brown with only one crispy leaf. However I've gotten a replacement! And its doing great!
