I would like to find out if anyone had experience using Horticultural Charcoal like the one below as an additive to the soil for Cephs?
Couple of days ago I divided and replanted my Cephalotus in a mix that contained Charcoal (~10%) as per the soil recommendation I have seen on other resources. The soil also contains peat, sand, small orchid park and APS, it is well draining. I never used charcoal in the soil before and since this Ceph is the lone survivor from my old "grand" collection, I would like to keep it happy. Old soil mix was about 2yrs old and plant was overtaken by carpet moss.
P.S. Long time no post. Glad to see some familiar names.
