    I have noticed both our Lowes and Home Depot have gone to the Miracle Gro brand. It sucks as the perlite has fertilizer in it also. Many like to fertilize their neps, but usually not with this stuff. I suppose you could soak and rinse multiple times, but I would rather find Schultz, or another brand.
    Capensis, you will notice that this subject will get you more answers than any other, lol. I have not used pure lfs myself for a while, but Exotica does well with it. Theirs ends up growing, and maybe the live sphagnum makes a huge difference.

    Try searching google maps for a nearby garden center or nursery. They often have a better selection.

    Every time I've been at Lowe's I've seen pallets of the peat bales. You can find them outside, usually by the fence where they have those huge metal shelves that hold all the other mass soil and mulch containers.
