Phalaenopsis orchids are ‘epiphytes’ – plants that grow higher up attached to tree trunks etc – so their roots need to be able to ‘breath’ when potted. Therefore, the right kind of orchid potting medium is a must!
Nowadays there are lots to choose from in the market. I’ve gathered some examples below of different orchid potting mediums that are suitable.
