    Nep Seed Mix

    Today I received N. andamana seeds and went to my local garden shop to get orchid bark for a bark, vermic, peat mixture. Unfortunately, they don't carry orchid bark, but they do have a miracle grow vermic/bark mixture. My question is, how detrimental is it to have the miracle grow fertilized mixture? I haven't bought naything yet, just checking my options!

    Don't buy it. Just get it online. Miracle-gro is horrible. I grew other plants in that and they died.....

    shredded LFS might work well, but I've never tried it.

    I haven't had any troubles from Miracle-Gro brand perlite yet. The rumor is that they only put the smallest amount of miracle-gro in some of the products, so they can say that its in there. It's quite difficult to find anything that doesn't have miracle-gro in it already. Even schultz is adding fertilizer to their products to be competitive...
