Pumice is ideal for orchid growing - a lightweight, inorganic, highly porous growing media holding 25 to 50% of its weight in water, offering excellent air circulation. It is great for orchids that resent disturbance since repotting is only required when pots are outgrown. Pumice does not decay: it crumbles slightly over many years. Change every few years. Use alone or mixed with 10% Sphagnum Moss soaked and well torn up. Plastic or glazed pots are best as they retain moisture. Pumice changes colour when dry, making it easier to know when to water
