Have just received my three tiny ponerorchis graminifolia 'butterfly wing' hardy orchids from T&M. Now the instructions tell me that I have to find/make their required compost. Help! And can I start them off indoors, so keep an eye on them until things start happening?

Dont know the plant but if they are a true orchid then you can buy compost specifically for orchids. I would certainly keep them indoors until they are growing away well.

I have read that they pefer to be on the dry side.

I've potted mine into a mix of fine orchid compost, vermiculite & perlite. I now have shoots coming through.
