    My local garden supplier carries Hoffman Orchid Mix. If anyone has used this, do you recommend it? I'm repotting a Rolf. Creole. Thanks.

    I looked it up...it looks like a standard mix. However, i'm not sure what you pot a Rolf. in, so hopefully someone will see your question and be able to help you better.

    Thanks for replying. I couldn't find any information about repotting a Rolf. Creole, so I decided to use the Hoffman orchid mix. I got the organic mix and the pieces were very large, so I broke them up a bit.

    Minda, I did a search and have found out what your plants make up is Rolf. = Rolfeara = Brassavola x Cattleya x Sophronitis. The mix you are using will be good to use. What type of pot (container) are you using? Take Care,Rich

    Thanks for your help, Rich. I used a clear round plastic pot with holes in the sides and bottom.
