    Mostly they are epiphytes and part terrestrials. I grow mostly on bark + LECA. I am not sure if cedar mulch would be good.

    That is what my gut is saying also. Hard to find orchid medium in my area. Was able to find a small bag of Miracle Grow orchid mix, perlite, spagmamoss and the cedar ( which I thought was cypress, till I got home). But, was in hopes this would do.
