Questions & Answers

should I soak the medium before putting the new orchid into it?

I have my orchids in pots that have holes in their sides. Should I soak the pot for a half and hour or so as a watering technique? What is the best way to water?
Asked by: flowergirl
Yes, I soak the loose orchid mix in a bowl before planting the orchid. I plant the orchid in the mix in an orchid pot. My orchid pots have holes in their sides. I soak my orchid(s) in it's pot in a larger container of water for 10 minutes (with orchid food in the water) every 2 weeks. About a week after soaking I add 1/4 cup of water to the top of each orchid pot. Kat

What is the Ratio of each amendment? Is it even of each bark, charcoal and perlite?

Asked by: Jay
I'm forwarding this answer from my son who takes care of our houseplants: "Hi, Jay, It's hard to get an accurate ratio because, in general, the bark pieces are large, the charcoal pieces are medium, and the perlite pieces are small. However, if I had to guess, I'd say it's roughly 75% bark, 15% perlite, and 10% charcoal, which is really a good balance. This is really the only viable mix on the market for epiphytic orchids that I know of, because it has the 3 ingredients that epiphytic orchids need and does not have peat. There are 2 things an epiphytic orchid can't stand: peat and urea. Hope this helps. Thanks for asking. Forest"

Hi I'm growing pineapple plants there a part of the Bromeliad family and need good Fast-draining soil so i wanted to know if this stuff would be good to use?
Asked by: evildeadguy8
Never used it for bromeliads but see no reason not to as most don't need soil.
