I'm thinking about it, I'm not sure yet. If it was outdoors I would think I'd need a better water collection method, as it would probably need a lot (even more now that it's in an airy pot). I live in VA, on the edge of zone 7a and 7b. I'm thinking of moving across town soon, so that will probably dictate where plants end up.
Schultz orchid mix... that's exactly what I tossed in there. I didn't see any pumice though. The ingredients said bark, charcoal, and some kind of inert moisture-holding ceramic (similar to perlite or vermaculite I guess).
All the plant has to do to outgrow the tank is to put a leaf in front/back direction rather than left/right, and I'm screwed. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
Wouldn't the best place for highland N. truncata be.....the mountains of the Philippines?
Sorry, could not resist.
When you guys use the orchid mix, do you soak it or use it right out of the bag?
I used it out of the bag... but I don't know if I should have or not. I figure in 85% humidity it's going to get soaked soon anyway.
Griffin, i would agree with you 100%, but if you go to the phillippino mountains, there is massive and indiscriminate logging going around, that if the truncata highlands had brains, they would love to move out!.
