Medium Coconut Husk Mix - gallon
Coconut Husk is so wonderful for orchids! It's incredible moisture retentive without feeling wet. Take a moist piece in your hand.. it doesn't feel wet... squeeze it and out comes a drop or two of water. Orchids just love this.. they get good air flow around their roots, but are bathed with the moisture being given off. Want to watch your plants thrive? Try them in a little medium coconut husk orchid potting mix!
I am now sourcing my coconut husk chips from Sri Lanka.. they come well packaged and I find the chucks much more uniform in size and free from too much fiber over other sources I have tried. The cost of shipping is, of course, absurd, but I think the quality speaks for itself. In addition, coconut husk doesn't break down nearly as quickly as moss or fir bark, making it a cost effective medium over time.
These coconut husk chips are combine with sponge rock and charcoal in a wonderful mix for many larger rooted orchids, such as Cattleya and Phalaenopsis.
Try it.. you'll love it!
