Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst orchid mix ever! The charcoal and perlite are superfine powder. Whatever doesn't stick to your hanbs get washed out when you water the orchid or settle on the bottom of the pot and harden. As well, a lot of the bark pieces are shredded, thus are pretty useless in retaining moisture.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesnt hold water It doesnt hold water at all. Seeps right through. Not sure if something should be added at the bottom like moss? Oh well. Purchased it in March & it is now July. No growth yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fir bark and other goodies This product wasn't exactly what I expected, consisting of various fir barks and things, but it seems to be good quality. I'm not growing orchids right now so I am using it for drainage in the bottom of my pots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is the good stuff: bark pieces, not soil. So far so good, it has only been a few weeks but my orchids are surviving in this dry forced-air-heated home (with a bit of sphagnum moss and leca mixed in). Hopefully in a few months I will see new growth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good and only choice Nice size bark mix. Issue is dusty. Don’t know if fertilizer added and will be washed away.

Would this be a good medium for repotting a ZZ plant?

Asked by: Brownthumb
Hello, I wouldn't recommend our PRO-MIX Orchid Mix for a ZZ plant, instead I would use our PRO-MIX Tropical Plant Mix. Thank you!

So i bought this the other day to repot my orchids, it says to soak the mix in water? How much mix and water am i to use?

Asked by: Braedon
Hello Braedon, we recommend to put the requested amount in a bowl, presoak the mix for 24–48 hours, then drain well before use. Thank you.
