I was always of the impression that Dove Orchids were grown on regular plant pots on normal soil (clay-sand mix). This picture is an eye opener. Probably why my Dove Orchids have been growing smaller instead of bigger :) If you're an expert, would like to know what potting mixture I can use for this.
Probably not the best way to pot a Dendrobium. Would be best to hang it in a well drained pot with holes for aeration. Orchids grow best in on decaying wood or clay pots. Other materials should essentially be inert.
