I think I used some coconut chunks on the bottom and a bunch of oak leaves for the top half of the pot. Plenty of water and fertilizer added as well!

On a work break - use a huge pot. Imagine it's a Cymbidium. The roots look the same. I put my bare-root Ecuagenera Peristeria and Anguloa directly into 5 gallon pots. Within 6 months I could use the plants as handles to pick up the pots. In a rainier climate I would use a looser mix rather than a smaller pot. I think I wrote what I used above.
