Orchiata #9 Classic plus Perlite - small bag
Orchiata #9 Classic mixed with spongerock/perlite is an exceptional growing medium specifically designed to cater to the needs of small or struggling orchids. This unique blend combines the advantages of two premium components to create an optimal environment for orchid growth.
Orchiata Classic #9, forms the foundation of this mixture. It is made from the finest quality New Zealand Pinus radiata bark, which is carefully sourced and processed to ensure consistency and exceptional quality. The bark particles are meticulously graded to a medium size (9-12mm) that strikes the perfect balance between water retention and drainage. This allows for proper aeration and prevents the roots from becoming waterlogged, a common issue that can be detrimental to small or struggling orchids.
The addition of spongerock/perlite to the blend enhances the overall performance of the growing medium. Spongerock is a lightweight, porous volcanic rock that provides excellent drainage and aeration properties. Its unique structure allows it to retain moisture while also ensuring that excess water is swiftly eliminated, preventing the roots from sitting in overly saturated conditions. This quality is particularly beneficial for small or struggling orchids that require precise moisture control to encourage root health and growth.
With this mixture, orchid enthusiasts can confidently provide their delicate orchids with the best possible conditions for successful growth and blooming.
