The beauty of rockwool is that is does not breakdown, as it’s not organic. That’s why phrags love it, as you can just pot on and not disturb the roots. That’s what I’ve been told by growers of huge specimen phrags. Mine have not been in it long enough to need larger pots. You do need to rinse with clear water every month or salts can accumulate with it, though.thanks for the pictures and info.
How often do you find you need to repot with this mix? Maybe you already have a system to repot every year or sooner? I’m curious to see what Interval has worked best for phrags, paphs, other orchids if you have any in the same mix.
Is there anything specific that you look for to indicate that the mix has deteriorated and you need to repot?
Are there any other recommendations, like things to Absolutely avoid When using this mix, that might have led to unfavorable results? Thanks!
