cork works well for growing orchids on and we have a variety of sizes available

 Cork Plaques
We have found cork to be the most desireable substance for orchid plaques. Used alone, the orchid can dry out quickly between waterings. For orchids that need to dry out more slowly, the addition of a pad (coconut husk fiber, osmunda, sphagnum) works well. Cork has natural crevices that orchid roots just LOVE! It doesn’t break down, and adds a beautiful, natural look to mounted orchids.

Cork is the bark stripped from the Cork Oak (Quercus suber) tree. Over time this bark can develop considerable thickness and is harvested every 10-12 years. The harvesting of cork does not harm the tree and a new layer grows, making it a renewable resource. Our cork is from Portugal.

Our “pre-wired” plaques are approx. 4" x 4" and are wired and ready to hang.

We have cork plaques up to 10" x 30". Contact us if you need a custom size.
