This mix of fir bark, coarse pumice, charcoal, and sphagnum moss provides the right combination of good drainage, air flow, and moisture retention ideal for tropical orchids.
How to repot an orchid
Remove all of the old potting medium. With sterilized scissors or pruners, remove any rotten roots. Work in the new mix, shaking and knocking the pot as necessary to fill between the roots. Aim to have the crown of the orchid right on the surface of the bark, not buried below or standing high. Orchids potted in a bark-based medium require more frequent watering than those potted in pure moss.
