Welcome to the discussion forums! One thing that will take some getting used to is that there will be some variety to approaches and most (if not all) will be valid. For soil, you can buy a bag of sphagnum peat (2.5 cubic ft) and or perlite and or the dried LFS (long fibred sphagnum moss), and or sand. There is much debate as to whether play sand or all purpose sand is acceptable. I just go to a pool supply place and get a 50 lb bag and I know that's safe. As for water, distilled, RO (reverse osmosis), deionized, and rainwater are acceptable. When I worked at a lab, I had all the free deionized water I wanted. I amno longer spoiled. Many people buy the gallon jugs of distilled water from any grocery store or Walmart and many collect rainwater. Now I collect rainwater. Once your plant is showing new growth, it would be wise to stage it outside.
