My friend gave me a huge staghorn fern that fell from one of her trees in Nuuanu Pali. There is a very large area of old growth fiber behind the ferns. I am cutting away some of this fiber in chunks. Can I use this as part of the medium to repot my orchids? The previous owner of our newly purchased home left us about 45 orchids and they all need repotting.. Being able to use the staghorn fiber will help with the cost of purchasing so much orchid medium. Thanks in advance for your advice. Maryann
