Better-Gro Phalaenopsis Mix by Sun Bulb was the first Orchid potting mix I ever purchased when I realized I might be addicted to Orchids. I’m sure if you’re reading this, you’ll totally understand what I’m talking about.
The only thing I knew about using bark as an Orchid media is that it needs to soak prior to using. The bag itself was so pretty, and the reviews were pretty decent too. I didn’t know anything else about Orchids at that time, nor did I realize there was anything else on the market that could be used to pot Orchids. WOW was I wrong! But that’s not what this article is about.
You’ve undoubtedly seen the abbreviations S/H and Semi-Hydro searching through Orchid forum posts, not at all knowing what this means.
S/H and Semi-Hydro are simply an abbreviation for Semi-Hydroponics, a growing media that is non-organic or simply growing plants and vegetables without soil.
S/H is not a true hydroponic ebb and flow system, thus it is referred to as ‘semi’ or partially hydroponic.
