    Wow, i thought maybe i'd open this thread and find a photo of your new N. edwardsiana or something, Spec! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Trying to overcome my ingrained frugality, i'm trying to use bigger pots for my plants in spite of how much medium it takes. That means no more mixing it up in a little bucket in my room. So last week when my roommate lent me his car i bought a big bag of small pine bark mulch and a bale of peat, and mixed up 10 gallons or so of a nep mix that smells lovely, drains well, and hopefully will work well. It ended up being about 4:2:2:1:1 barkeaterlite:lfs:coco chips with a couple handfuls of charcoal thrown in.

    I'm a bit scared about using bulk pine bark, but based on other posts i've seen here, i thought it was worth a try, because it's cheap and available locally. At some point i'm going to try to put together a good mix without any peat or sphagnum to minimize the environmental impact of my mix. I'm not sure how pine bark would fit with that goal, though. Unfortunately, all the coco by products are not available locally in bulk, or that would be the answer.
    There's no 'a' in perlite.

    While pine bark is a by-product of the lumber industry,so there going to cut down the trees wether people buy the bark or not,it`s not like they cut the trees down for the bark.
