Always looking for a new soil amendment, I'm fascinated with experimentation
in potting mixes, especially for my Aroids. Anyone with ideas, experiences,
suggestions, would love to hear from you on this forum.
I am having success with a potting mix suggested by a grower of terresterial orchids consisting of fir bark, charcoal, perlite, pumice, coir, and long fiber sphagnum moss- I sometimes add some leaf mould or peat. This mix deteriorates after a couple of years and must be replaced.
