Orchiata is widely recognized as the top tier bark based orchid growing substrate. It is a sustainable growing medium produced from using finest quality, 100% pure New Zealand Pinus radiata bark. Orchiata uses Pinus radiata that is sourced from renewable, man-made forests. Pinus radiata is harder and more stable than fir based growing media and this greatly reduces the need for repotting. Orchiata is, in part, unique due to the proprietary process that they use for aging the bark. Orchiata's aging regimen destroys pathogens while simultaneously promoting beneficial organisms. The outer surface of the bark is also broken down and this allows it to hold moisture and nutrients while the interior remains hard and stable. Orchiata provides consistent hydration for your orchids as well as an ideal wet/dry cycle and promoting excellent longevity.
