Customer Questions & Answers

Do I have to pre-soak the mix before using?

I am repotting the phalaenopsis orchids I bought from Trader Joe's for the first time. There's several videos on you tube that shows how to repot the orchids but most of them are using potting mixes that are custom blended. Please advise if I have to pre-soak this mix before putting them into the pots. Or should I use them dry and water them after potting.
Asked by: LUVORCHIDS
Yes, I always soak the mix overnight prior to potting.

Does the Jackson store stock this item?

Asked by: Jom
You may have to call the store for availability. Not every store has it. The stores in Alamogordo and Albuquerque NM don't have it.

8 Qt. Phalaenopsis Mix is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect product for my phalaenopsis orchid plants. I've been using it since we moved to Kanab UT ... Perfect product for my phalaenopsis orchid plants. I've been using it since we moved to Kanab UT in 2014. It's especially good due to the relatively dry season here. I can't find it anywhere with this price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good DO NOT BUY THIS MIX. It has some sort of of coconut moss, that holds way too much water. In a matter of weeks, the roots of my phalaenopsis were rotten, unsavable. I had my baby for 5 years and it was always coming back beautifully. I thought that maybe I got crown rot. I reported a second phalaenopsis on this mix avoiding that coconut moss thingy, and again in two weeks I noticed some mold on the roots. The pot has extra ventilated holes, and I just watered it once after repotting, and the root system on this orchid was in excellent condition. I took my baby out of that thing and I threw away the rest of it. This mix hold way to much water. I already order a pure bark from new zealand, that look more than the one my second orchid was potted on. I hope I will save it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product My phalaenopsis love this mix. They started putting out new leaves almost immediately. Home Depot price is the lowest I've found for this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good blend but... I wish that the bark pieces were smaller. They are way too large. Only good if you have very large orchids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Orchid mix was exactly as described. The mix was exactly how I would expect a phal orchid mix to look and act. My plants are very happy in this mix. Great for my area since it dries very fast, and humidity is very high here. Maybe use with caution in a area of low humidity because you may need to water more often then you would like.
