Potting MediumsWritten by Andy W
Depending on the type of orchid, potting medium plays a big role in the root system thriving. Small to large chunks of bark, gravel, cork, tree fern (shredded needles to chunks) and even old shoes can be used to hold an orchid in place. This presentation will examine several common orchid root systems, and determine the preferred orchid potting medium to be used. This will also include bare-root mounting of orchids.
This topic will be the feature of the June 2017 Napa Valley Orchid Society's Newsletter.
