rePotme is pleased to offer Orchiata™ Monterey Pine Bark in extra small, small and medium chips. This extraordinary media from New Zealand is dark and rich and comes from the bark of Pinus Radiata which does not decompose as quickly as fir bark. It retains a hard structure with excellent porosity, has a more stable PH and is an organic renewable resource. Monterey Pine Bark was discussed in the article called Growing the Best Phalaenopsis in the February 2007 edition of Orchids, the Journal of the American Orchid Society, as a favorable media for orchid cultivation noting its ability to hold moisture and nutrients at a higher PH resulting in better orchid growth. Monterey Pine Bark was also recognized in a related article printed in Greenhouse Grower magazine in August 2005. "The imported aged bark obtained from the Monterey pine, grown in New Zealand for lumber, has been used by an increasing number of orchid growers in the United States. Our preliminary research found that aged Monterey pine bark holds more moisture and nutrients and maintains a higher pH than fir bark, resulting in better plant growth. In addition, this aged pine bark does not decompose as quickly." Each piece of small Monterey Pine Bark is roughly 1/4 inch. Also available in extra small chips, medium chips and large chips.
