    Question Repotting Paphs

    Hi Everyone again,
    I recently repotted my two only paphs, paph niveum, and paph delenatii. I just wanted to know if it was okay that I repotted my niveum in medium CHC/perlite/and charcoal,(washed several times), and my delenatii in bark/chunky peat/charcoal/perlite
    For the delenatii, would it be okay to put some loosely packed sphagnum moss around the base of the plant to encourage root growth?

    same here.. I try and keep my mix simple... just bark! and I feed the little suckers seaweed fertiliser or worm juice and they send out roots with those...

    I think they would do fine with your mix, although I too, use straight bark or bark with a little charcol.
