Orchiata is a unique, stable substrate designed to be used straight from
the bag for potting and re-potting orchids.
It is produced from the finest quality, 100% pure New Zealand Pinus radiata
bark, sourced from renewable, man-made forests.
A unique natural processing method destroys harmful pathogens and toxins,
and leaves behind beneficial micro-organisms to create a high-quality,
long lasting, consistent growing substrate.
This processing method also allows Orchiata to hold water and nutrients
on the outside layer of each chip and it imparts a slightly rough surface,
creating a perfect anchor for orchid roots.
By using Orchiata, growers have reported that frequent re-potting is not
necessary, as potted plants have been known to remain in excellent condition
in excess of 10 years.
