I needed to add a lot sphagnum and peat moss and only a tiny bit of this mix to make a decent mix for my orchids. And I don't even know why they added ANY perlite to it. The perlite pieces are so big, and the actual ratio of perlite in the mixture is so small that it doesn't add any benefit to the mix at all, really.
This mix is not the super chunky stuff, so you can mix it with a slightly larger blend for the perfect orchid environment. I mixed it with a larger mix and like I said, my orchids are thriving in their new pots.
As promised, this mix has small chunks of charcoal to keep the media fresh, small chunks of slate, and bits of sphag. This has been the media I have solely used in my orchid collection for years now, and my orchids have never been happier!
