Thanks Mike.
Should I also mix in some charcoal or just the perlite? I will stop at the nursery this week to see about getting a brick of it to try.

Do you think I could use it for the Masdevallia? I haven't done very well using the sphag and I know that is what the Masdevallia will come in.

I have some packing foam that I could put in the bottom of the pot first then the coir mixed with perlite, does that sound OK? then to water again it is just how heavy the pot is?
