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.
