Greenmix is a mixture stone woll of two types. One is water absorbing and one is water reppeling. It also conantains also perlite. Greemmix may not dry completely. If dry it will suck water from the plants and dehydrate them.

It is formulated by Christansen in Denmark who has won many prices for his orchids. I bought 100 litre from him this spring.

I use it mainly for Phrags, some dendrobiums and some others.

Stockholm the capital of Sweden is a desert when it comes to judgments and exebithions. Its much better in south/southwest of Sweden.

I can post a photo of greenmix during the weekend if I remember.

Just found this thread and wow, that looks fantastic. I just bought one ( a differen't clone though, 'Firebird') and I'd love for it to look like that one day. Any culture/growing tips?

I belive its is easy in culture. Mine blooms twice per year.
I keep it outside in the summer. Otherwice east or west direction.
Only one problem - after blooming mine is most often infected with mites.
I have no clue why.
