    Default PeteMc - A question for you...

    Have you switched any of your plants over to Frank's mix yet? I'm curious to know how you are finding/adjusting to it. I find it a little tricky to figure out the watering with. So, curious to know what, if anything, you have in it so far. Thanks!

    All that's in it is the paph 'Ninja' I picked up during my visit with him, but I intend to pot up some bareroot phals that will be arriving shortly with it, see how they do. His phals were a little on the rough side, but I think it had more to do with the amount of light they were getting, not the mix.

    since it's primarily CHC, I suppose I would put it somewhere between medium bark on the dry end and a sphag/bark mix on the wet end, but folks here with more experience are probably better at providing an accurate analogy.

    it's been here only a short time, but the Ninja appears to be doing ok; 3" aircone, Frank's mix, I'm watering every fourth day or so.

    also, you have a pm.

    Thanks Pete! I forgot to mention, I have a lot of plants in aircone plants and just LOVE them! Got them elsewhere though.
