    Default Microcoelia exilis seed growing medium

    Hi

    I have been given some Microcoelia exilis seed pops that are ready for sowing (green pod). What commercial media are considered acceptable for sowing the seeds?

    Regards

    David

    Hi David,

    I mostly use Orchid Maintenance Medium P6668. I don´t know if this medium is available in your country.

    On the site of The Orchid Seedbank Project you can find many recipes (Media Formulae).
