Any potting media suggestions for phais tankervilleae other than sphagnum I need to save my moss for a bunch of cattleyas I'm about to repot and don't want to buy more.

Phaius can do well in “peat lite” potting soils, but I have grown them in 50/50 sand and peat moss, as well as in semi-hydroponic culture with a LECA medium.

I was thinking about using medium grade washed coconut husks in a plastic pot but now I might use my catasetum mix 50% peat 50% sharp sand.
