Orchiata Orchid Bark from New Zealand is the relatively new kid on the block, but we know enough really good growers that are switching to it to convince us it is pretty awesome. This potting medium is getting great reviews, and is supposed to last many times longer than all other orchid barks. Some reports have it lasting up to 14 years without breaking down in the pot. This has been such a universal success story there's no reason it won't work for you.
Sure, as with any potting mix, you will have to experiment with your watering and still let the pot dry out good before you water again. No pre-soaking is necessary, just open it up and start potting. That convenience combined with its long lasting durability make this the optimum mix for the modern day efficient orchid grower.
The chips are available in two different sizes: either 1/4 to 3/8 inch pieces (smaller size), or 1/2 to 3/4 inch pieces (larger size).
