    peat, sand, pumice, charcoal, and orchid bark. It drains quickly and that is what I'm concerned about plus the neps seem to be enjoying it.

    @gea: most people use long fibered sphagnum rather than peat. but you know know what they say...if it aint broke, dont fix it. but do keep an eye out.

    Yes I am aware of that. I also know that when I repot yearly peat is not a problem. Although I do appreciate the concern of other members my decision about soil is not without knowledge. I have spent a lot of time researching the subject and trying what works for me. I tend not to use LFS because it is such a pain in the butt to remove from roots when repotting. Next go around I may be adding milled sphagnum to my mix.

    In some conditions, it certainly helps to add some peat to the mix. I know that I should probably use more peat in my mixes.

    N. x Pyriformis is a very nice hybrid. I haven't seen it around very often.
