    I use glazed orchid pots with the holes in the sides. For phalaenopsis orchids I use a mix of 75% LFS, and 25% orchid bark.

    One caution about LFS. You need to make sure the moss dries out or at least doesn't stay soggy or you will get root rot. I have quite a few phals that I got from an officemate who buys them from a vendor who packs them tightly in moss...she overwaters them and they stay soggy and next thing I know I'm receiving a dehydrated phal with rotted roots.

    So if you use a lot of moss, just make sure it drains well and dries out some before watering.
