    My preferred mix these days is 1/2 lfs, and 1/2 chunky stuff - like orchid bark, perlite, pumice, charcoal...

    Your mix will work, too. Everyone has their favorite. See how it goes for you!

    I use just LFS. Get ready though, they get addicting. I started with one, now I have like 10.

    Strait up LFS has worked the best for me. I tried a few different soil "recipies" but strait LFS seemed to be best. Also in about a year and a half all the LFS will be alive and it makes a beautiful soil cover.

    It takes that long for the LFS to come back alive?

    That depends on your conditions. After about 2 months the dried stuff starts to come back. After about a year and a half you won't be able to see any of the dead LFS anymore.

    At least thats how it is for me. But keep in mind most of my plants grow outside in horrible conditions.
