You will find specialized orchid potting mixes in your local garden center. They are composed mostly of bark chips to ensure excellent drainage. Orchids bloom best when they are potbound so replant yours only every 3-4 years, or when you know for certain they simply have no more room left for root growth within the pot. Best wishes with your orchids!
