new potting medium (to me)

just bought a Phal from a supermarket and discovered a different potting medium it's sort of solid, instead of bark chips and moss that I am used to seeing (I use to grow years ago) I want to repot out of the ugly plastic pot it came in, but what do I use for potting medium. Can you buy or where do you buy this new potting medium

Hi and welcome to the forum phil2 !
Most of the box stores sell orchid mix, or you can go online and order from an orchid specialty site.
