    Which species are you considering? Some are more sensitive to compacted LFS than others but some will thrive in it.

    I grow all but one of my neps in live LFS or dried new zealand LFS (those in pots >6" also have orchid bark mixed in). They've all been doing fine.

    I like to mix in some sponge rock to limit my LFS use and to avoid compaction. With even more in larger pots. But I don't grow lowlanders.

    its ok...as long as you dont have N. Northiana which only likes alkaline and will suffer in LFS.
