Update on new growth after crown-rot.

The second image shows an update on the progress of new growth on Phalaenopsis Mini-mark with crown rot. Original image shown on node number 12925, dated 27-06-2015.

A different procedure with the first image which shows an old back bulb from Dendrobium senile which was placed on sphagnum moss and has sprouted a new growth, you may be able to see two new roots from the base of the new growth, which emerge from one of the nodes of the old bulb. I sometimes place old bulbs which I want to sprout new growths on a bed of sphagnum and spray lightly every other day with rainwater. You will see another two back-bulbs in the same image from a Bulbophyllum sp.

Bulbophyllum longirepens

I got this plant about 5 or 6 years ago as a small division from an Victorian nursery as Bulbophyllum angustifolia but it cleraly is not. This is the first flowering, it has grown very well in the time I have had it.
I have done a bit of checking and I have come up with a name , Bulbophyllum longirepens from the new Bulbo. book 'Bulbophyllum of Borneo'. Can anyone verify this name or can anyone give me a correct ID for my plant please.

Some advice

I need some advice if possible. I have made up a few mounts for my Bulbophyllums filling them with fresh sphagnum moss. I have been fertilizing and the front of my mounts are turning a nice green while the under side is still the normal color of sphagnum. I'm thinking the fertilizer is causing the media to turn green. I have attached 2 photos of the mounts. In one of them you can see in the bottom right corner the sphag. is still the normal color.
My questions are will the green coloring harm my plants, what can I do to get rid of it. Maybe spray with something, a friend suggested spraying it with Alginox. Could it be a build up of nitrogen that is causing it.
