    Orchids are always cultured on stryo with their varying propagation techniques (mostly seed) and whether or not they aid in supporting the plant on its multi 1000 mile journey, ive never had a dry/weak/struggling specimen and they adapt to new conditions very quickly and successfully, no probs at all. Many other formats have not been good at all and fail. I have incorporated the use of stryo/polystyrene into my own orchid care and think it may be Cathy or Connie recently has done the same.

    Hi Matt thanks for the info. I also used styro at the bottom to encourage drainage and the pot relatively light, is good for the small species.
