    My preference is 1/1/1 orchid mix (bark, charcoal, and ceramic rocks)/LFS/perlite. I don't use this, though. I use pure LFS since I can't water all the time like some people.


    To me, it's just stupid to use live LFS in a mix when you could use dead LFS and put the live as a topdressing. Hello, am I the only one that realizes it'll die when not exposed to light and thus become regular dead LFS? It should be a sin to bury live red LFS >: (

    yeah...I want it to be consistent enough that I can water all my neps at once. However, I am getting charcoal as well. So I will be using charcoal, bark and LFS with top dressing of live sphagnum. SO far..I have found good results with bical, ramispina and rajah so I rather make a small change rather than a huuge one.

    lFS?? Long fiber sphagnum moss. Its basically the dried up sphagnum moss. this is a precursor to PEAT.

    Basically if u get some live sphagnum....dont water it..it becomes dry right? now that is called LFS. let it be under pressure and let it decay under anaerobic conditions for a couple of hundred years and you get peat.

    well.....the hundred years is a little rough figure. But yeah...peat does indeed take a while to form.
