We are the exclusive importer and wholesaler of Orchiata Bark, a premium New Zealand substrate that is used for a variety of purposes from horticulture to herpetology. Orchiata Bark is made from sustainable, renewable resources and is backed by science to provide results. For example, when Orchids are repotted in Orchiata Bark they require less watering and repotting over the years. Why is this? Orchiata Bark is made from Pinus radiata, a New Zealand pine bark specially aged allowing it to hold water without breaking down. Don’t take our word for it! Hear from a few of our Orchiata Bark customers…
“I use the orchiata for several reasons. First of all, it is economical since it lasts more than twice as long as heat treated bark at about the same price. Secondly, it doesn’t break down into that muddy mess at the bottom of the pot that holds moisture far too long and rots the roots. And last, it appears to allow better air circulation because it doesn’t compress as fast as other bark.”
“I use Orchiata almost exclusively without much additives. Even with my very heavy watering it lasts longer than any other bark. It re-wets easily and does not turn to mud after just a few years. Everything seems to grow very well in it. If you have not tried Orchiata, try it. I think you will like the difference.”
With Orchiata Bark, Orchids are able to grow beautiful and last longer! Check out other ways Orchiata Bark is used.
