Substrate - Custom Orchid mixes !

Postby Lanthia » Wed Jan 06, 2016 3:00 pm

I am having trouble finding Turface in OKC but I found this really nifty web site that does custom dirt; http://www.repotme.com/orchid-mix/SelectABlend.html

I haven't checked the price yet. I want Turface and ABG. I think I could make an pretty good substrate mix using this site.

I'll have to find your substrate "recipes" Phil.

Interesting site - seems expensive? Maybe not, I'm just comparing to $20 for 50 lbs :). I get mine from SiteOne formerly John Deere Landscape Supply.

There are two locations in OKC. I'd give them a call and see what they have in stock. The guys in Austin chuckle when I come in and buy one bag. They said they only sell this stuff every once in a while to the city and they buy it by the pallet. They liked seeing the pictures of the frogs.

Let us know how your search goes!

Thanks for that link! They had 50lb bags of Turface for $13.06. Now if I can get my lfs to order in some ABG, I'm good to go.

$13.06! Wow. You have to build a few vivs now to use up all that Turface! Glad you found some.
