I have never used CHC before for anything (although I used to rip up coconuts and use the fiber when I potted plants in Costa Rica) and I was wondering what size chip would anyone recommend for potting plants? I read that the medium was good for about all plants, and thats what I was thinking of going with, but how small is the fine grade and would that be better for seedlings rather than the medium grade.

Also, does anyone use the Kellys Korner special orchid mix and if so, how do they like it? I usually stick to certain mixes that I make myself but I saw this one and it contained pretty much everything I was going to mix into one I was going to make myself.

i've been using Kelley's special mix for about a year now and i've been very happy with it. things seem to enjoy it, too. i do add some sphag as needed, though...
