Subject: U. calycifida, epiphyte or terrestrial?

I noticed in Slack's book that he lists U. calycifida as epiphytic,
while Peter's book lists it as terrestrial. I have been growing mine as
a terrestrial, and it seems to be growing very slowly, producing mostly
tiny leaves rather than the larger, veined ones. It's also growing in a
undrained container that's probably a bit on the small side. The soil
is 1:1 peat/sand mix. Should I be growing this plant in a more
epiphytic mix? Any suggestions regarding growing conditions in general
are appreciated.
