I have an Nep. Izumiae showing up tomorrow, and I’ve read two interesting recommendations for the potting medium. One recommend 100% long stem sphagnum and the other recommended a little bit of orchid bark. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I don't like bark because it can get mushy and rot over time, I use perlite.

Thanks, I do have an extra netted pot knocking around waiting for some action.
