    I usually get a small tub of distilled water, and put 3/4 peat moss and 1/4 perilite, then I add a little bit of sphagnum, but not too much.

    Then I just kind of mix them together so that the peat, and the sphagnum kind of soaks up a bunch of water, while their being mixed together.

    Then I let the soil sit over night usually, and then plant a CP in it.

    I play a little with soil mixes....
    pete/perlite is my #1 for most...BUT
    LFS pure is #1 for neps

    other experiments are:
    pure LFS for 'dews....didn't do as well as the pete/perlite mix...and I keep having to weed out that $#@! grass that grows in LFS.
    For two neps I have a pete/perlite/orchidbark/charcol mix of 1:1:1:1.
    by the way,

    I guess I'm kind of lazy too. I use whatever's available. Which is usually Peat, Perlite, and LFS. Although, I do agree with PlantAKiss. Perlite is very distracting, that's why I always try to top dress the soil.

    P.S. It's snowing here too. We just got 8".
