The following mix works great for me:

2 parts partially composted pine bark fines
1 part long-fiber sphagnum moss
1 part perlite
1 tablespoon pelletized limestone per 1-2 gallons of mixture (test pH first)

I would like to add that there are literally endless variations on the mix used for any species but for parviflorum remember to have a moist, organic, well-drained soil; if you are growing var. parviflorum (smaller variety) keep a pH of 5-6 and for pubescens pH 7-8, though pH is also arguable. Hope this helps, and good luck!
