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

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.

My mother, an orchid nut and a very good grower, said the orchid mix was a good quality. If she thinks that then I'm going to believe her. I found no bugs in the mix (I was a bit worried after reading reviews of some other products)

Using orchid pots and this type of mulch like product works best for them. It's almost too difficult to overwater! I have used this product for years now and won't use any other. Change it out ever year and I get beautiful blooms from my orchids.
