I'm sorry they had to find out that way about coconut husk mediums. That is stressed to leach out the salts for orchids. People love coco husk for orchids. Just have to soak soak and soak some more. I am still researching. BobZ is maintaining the ICPS society page where I hot that mix from and I just shot him an email fit more info and if he has used it. I really want to use an inorganic mix. Even leaning towards it with my orchids. I know it does well with orchids with occasional repots due to root development. Orchid roots are so big and choke off the are and can take root stripping and live. Bros have the fragile root systems and so it has me scared to loose roots is all.
Grrrr just overworking myself I know. But I want to be a great grower and have specimen plants.
