    I have success with a heavy silica in peat mix. Grown in cool HL conditions.. moist, but not wet.

    I've heard that Sphag:Perlite is a favoured mix too- people often say that they like cool roots etc- so it probably helps with that

    In my growing conditions: 65 - 80F, humidity 50 - 75% and fairly high light levels I have had good success with just plain long-fibered sphagnum (the good stuff, not the dirty, cheap garbage you sometimes see.) 'Got a new plant coming, Mickey?

    The best mix is what works best for you. It depends a lot on your conditions and cultivation practices.

    Some people find pure live Sphagnum moss works best. Some find pure long fiber sphagnum (dried) works best. Most find a light airy, quickly draining mix of mostly sand or perlite or pumice and peat moss or long fiber sphagnum works (40% or less peat moss/LFS).

    I seem to get the best results with 60-75% perlite to peat moss so far, but still experimenting. This is what the best grower of D. regia in the LACPS was using too.

    Plants do not appreciate anaerobic conditions for the roots and do seem to appreciate a significant temperature drop at night.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
