    Oh! BIG pots. For the bottom I line it with bark from orchid mix, on top of that a mix of mostly perlite. On top of that 50-50 peat/perlite, peat only for the top layer (I hate how perlite molds&#33

    I zap about 2 to 3 cups of distilled water in the microwave for a minute or so to warm it up. You just need it warmed up. Not steaming or boiling hot. It is absorbed quicker by the moss. Just be careful you don't burn yourself by getting it too hot and let the moss cool down before putting plants in it.

    I always use green moss as a top coat ( never in the soil) because its hard to get lfs here. It keeps the peat off the leaves ( looks tacky) and makes the pot look more finished.
