Orchids require a fast draining potting mix. You can purchase a bag of Orchid Mix potting soil or you can make your own by adding bark chips to regular potting soil. I wouldn't use straight potting soil, though, because it will hold too much moisture and lead to root rot. Best wishes with your orchid!
