Orchiata bark from New Zealand is setting a new standard for growing orchids. The bark is wind rowed with limestone added. Natural heat is developed as the bark has water added and is slightly composted enough to burn off the chaff and dust leaving only hard, clean, nitrified bark. This bark breaks down slowly, and with more aeration (clay pots, perlite, growstone etc) can last for 3+ years, making it easy to repot with. When root bound, often all that needs to be done is shifting the root mass and bark into a larger pot and adding to it.
Orchiata Bark Sizes: Precision (Fine)=1/8" to 1/4" Classic (small) = 1/4" to 3/8" Power (medium) = 3/8" to 1/2" Power Plus (coarse) = 1/2" to 3/4" Super (Large) = 3/4"-1" Generally the precision size is used for Phragmipedium or Pleurothalis or very small seedlings that need moisture. The classic is used for most Orchid seedlings up to a 3 inch pot. The Power is for Phal, Paph and Cattleya seedlings up to a 4" pot. Power plus is for Phalaenopsis, Cattleyas or Vandas in 5" to 6.5 or 7" pots. The Super bark is used for extra large pots of Vandas or Cattleyas.
