    • Hello there, There is no such thing as “orchid soil”. Mix of loose gravel, coco-peat, regular soil, leaf litter etc can be used for potting orchids. Such mixture may not come ready-made from any manufacture as each type of plant requires different potting, so not sure if you can buy it off the shelf from any shop. Also please be informed that only terrestrial orchids should be potted in this manner. Hope this helps. Thanks
