A great size between seedling and medium size.. at 1/2" (9-12mm) it's great for smaller cattleya, encyclia, epidendrium... very nice.

I am starting to really love this stuff... it wets beautifully and stays moist without staying wet.. just what orchids love. And not having to mix it? That's a great thing... I use it right from the bag.. no pre-wetting required.. makes potting a dream!

This gallon bag gallon will way overflow an 8" bulb pan.

Orchid Roots Love Orchiata

This is a medium grade - I use this mixed with the #7 grade, charcoal and sponge rock for Cattleyas in 4" to 8" pots. Orchiata encourages root growth and it lasts for years, so the roots can go a long time without being disturbed. I often find I can pot on, which is also good for the roots.
