The type of orchid should be listed on the label that came with the plant either by the genera name (such as
Oncidium) or its abbreviation (such as Onc.) If you have an orchid with no label, our orchid identification page has pictures of many common orchid
to assist in identification.
Some orchid mixes contain small particles and are best for seedlings and fine
rooted orchids. Other mixes have medium to large size particles for thick rooted orchids. The mixes that we recommend for
genera are the same as the ones we use in our collection. For each type of orchid we list a Classic Orchid Mix and an Imperial Orchid Mix
mix. If you are looking for a custom alternative to our fresh made orchid mixes, try out our Select-A-Blend Make Your Own

are unsure which Orchid Mix is right for your plants.
“This fall I religiously followed your advice, creating an environment of shortened
days and lower temps in order to encourage blooming...I was successful. FINALLY!! Thank you, thank you!!
Both of my plants decided to bloom and they look beautiful. I wanted to share the good news and
my gratitude with you. Thanks again!”Laurie J.
“The potting medium you sent is gorgeous!! It's superior to the bark I've been
buying at Lowe's. I can't imagine what (my orchids) will do when I put them in your potting mix. It even
smells fresh!! Many, many thanks. I'll be ordering from you again.”
