This quality 50/50 bark mix is based on our small 8-15mm fraction orchid bark and our medium 12-20mm fraction orchid bark, this can be used alone as you will have a broad range of bark fractions from 8mm up to 20mm providing moisture whilst remaining open.
You could also use this as a base to make your own special orchid compost blend from products from our potting media range. Orchid Supplies UK will freshly hand prepare your own compost upon request to any quantity!
We think this mix is a worthwhile addition to our range as it bridges the gap between the small bark(8-15mm) and the medium bark(12-20) providing another option to growing your orchids.
Our small bark is more moisture retentive whilst our medium bark provides a free flowing very airy medium, combine the two and you get a medium that whilst remaining quite airy does retain some moisture.
