     Hi Abby,
     I did not mean to ignore your question, it's been a while since I visited here.
     The soil mix is just good-quality potting mix, mostly composted conifer bark and peat moss, with a little pumice added for drainage.  The fertilizer is...none!  It gets repotted once a year, and does not seem to need any fertilizer.  A tight pot and lots of water is what suits it best.
