At the moment I use Sigma P6668 (Phytotechlab P668) for motherflasks. For
replating I normally use P6668 + 10% coconut water but my Masdevallias did
not like it - growth is very slow.
I use the clear coconut water which comes from green nuts. Here in Austria
(Europe) green nuts are hard to find so I have to buy coconut water in cans.
As soon as my Masd. glandulosa capsule is ready for flasking I will start a
new experiment to find a better replating media.
