    You’ve heard all the stories and now we have it here at Kelley’s Korner Orchid Supplies!

    Orchiata is a unique, sustainable orchid growing media produced from the finest quality, 100% pure New Zealand Pinus radiata bark. Pinus radiata is sourced from renewable, manmade forests ensuring availability into the future.

    A unique production process allows Orchiata to hold water and nutrients on the outside layer of each chip, as well as creating a slightly rough surface that is perfect for roots to anchor to. In addition, harmful pathogens do not survive this process but the beneficial micro-organisms remain.

    Orchiata retains the best attributes of Pinus radiata, and combines them with longevity, ability to rewet quickly and long term stability. Growers’ have reported that frequent re-potting is not necessary, and potted plants have been known to remain in excellent condition in excess of 10 years.

    Orchiata does not need to be washed or soaked before use; it should be used straight from the bag. Dolomite (calcium magnesium) is applied to Orchiata in the final stages of production. Dolomite is a natural mineral that contains calcium and magnesium. Research shows dolomite addition to substrates is very beneficial, increasing the pH to within a range of 5.5 to 6.5 and providing the minerals calcium and magnesium, essential for plant growth. The dolomite in Orchiata provides the plant with an initial start up supply of these two minerals. This is beneficial for your plant and should not be washed out.

    This high quality, stable, long lasting, toxin free, consistent growing substrate is available in different sizes for your specific growing needs.

    This product is amazing.

    First, there are no insects unlike those that I have found using moss or other products that have to be washed.

    Drainage is fantastic and root rot is nil.

    However, the most amazing factor about this product is the growth rate of the plants and how healthy they have become.

    Have a great new year and many thanks.
