    You have a pretty good eye Chris. I missed it first time.

    Mainly inorganic; leca, pumice, limestone, charcoal. No particular ratio, depending on what is available. I top dress with a thin layer of sphagnum moss as these are grown indoors and the media surface dries out pretty quick.

    I use Osmocote slow release. Usually applied once when the new growth starts, then forget about fertilizer until after blooming and new growth starts again.
