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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good all-around mix for Epiphytic Orchids Better-Grow Special Orchid Mix is a good base mix. It comes already moist so there is no need to pre-soak if you don't want to, though this also means that the bark will start to break down in the bag if not used up within a year or two. I recommend only buying what you think you will use soonish, and try not to get bags that have been sitting on the shelf a long time. I use the mix as-is for Cattleyas, Dendrobiums and other orchids that like to dry out quickly between waterings. I use a ratio of 6 parts bark mix to 1 part sphagnum moss for Phalaenopsis, Oncidiums, and other orchids that don't need to dry out completely between waterings, and in pots smaller than 4 inches so that they stay moist long enough to be on a similar watering schedule as my bigger plants. If this mix used Orchiata bark instead of Fir bark, it would be perfect. Also Home Depot's price is 1/3 the price of Amazon's price.
