Thanasis, i don't know much about cyps, but i can help you with spathoglottis. Spathoglottis like medium that drain freely and they like being kept dry between waterings. So, don't use a medium that stays too wet... I think mix for paphs is ok, but you can add more sand or stones inside. Spathoglottis also like to 'eat' a lot..so feed them when they are growing. They also like bright sun.. gud luck growing... =)

I usually use around two parts Perlite to one part turface for my cyps. I think you can start here add more perlite or tuface to suit your conditions.
