Potting Soil

Potting soils should be acidic and hold moisture, yet drain quickly. Orchid mixes, peat moss, sphagnum moss, and charcoal all work well, as do soilless potting mixes. One easy recipe is half soilless mix and half orchid mix (fine grade).

Two things to avoid: Do not use garden soil and do not add a layer of drainage material to the bottom of the pot.
