    Pure LFS would be ok. You could put a little perlite in it for added drainage if you wanted to.

    The old soil was peat and orchid bark, that was it.
    So I mixed up about 2:1:1:1 two parts peat, pure live spaghnum,perlite, orchid bark

    So why did you need a response for inquring about the soil mix....? I fail to see your point here Dino. Seems you did fine, despite a response was made.

    That should be okay, i wouldda leaned toward pure LFS, with maybe perlite or something else mixed in to a small extent.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Because I wanted to check with the forum.....but I didnt have anymore time to wait after waiting for around 4 hours.
    And because I was scared that I was gonna mess up and get the mix wrong.....but it turned out fine, lol
