    Question Coryanthes repotting question??

    Hi ya! I just received,last week, 2 new coryanthes. One is a Coryanthes Trifoliata and the other is a Coryanthes Leferenzianum!They are both blooming size,in fact,the Leferenzianum is in spike now, so im not going to repot it.They both came in 3-3 1/2inch pots.I was wondering what medium to use due to their special needs.Because of their relationship with those ants!(ive done as much research as I can,something about more acidic medium?)I have baskets now,for them to go into, as it is my understanding that they like that better then a pot.Any help on the medium would be GREATLY appreciated!
