I've been looking around the local garden centres for orchid bark, but all they seem to offer is orchid compost. Some of my Neps are in need of repotting, and I was wondering if I could just use moss peat, perlite and finely chopped spagnum instead?

Peat and perlite, 20:80 works ok for many species.

Pure sphagnum seems to be a popular way to go, i'm going to try one of mine in this. I usually mix the sphag with perlite and or orchid bark.

I'm with Manders here.... mainly perlite with a dash of moss peat and you can't go wrong.

Unfortunately I don't have enough moss to use it 100% (I'm in the process of growing a good crop) but I'll go the peat/perlite route tomorrow, thanks for the advice
