Choosing the Optimal Bark Chips for Orchid Plants

Orchids, while beautiful, elegant and diverse plants available in an array of stunning colours, are notoriously tricky plants to grow and command a specific type of potting mix and aeration to thrive. However, the primary mistake people make when growing orchids is overwatering their plants or using the wrong potting substrate, causing excess water to build up, which means the roots are waterlogged.

Melcourt Orchid Bark Chips are specifically designed for orchids, a plant species that needs to absorb moisture through photosynthetic roots. This premium branded mix is perfect for all types of orchids, including Cattleyas, which love a bark that allows plenty of drainage and abundant natural light.

Why Coarse Grade Bark is the Most Suitable Orchid Potting Mix

AK Kin Garden Supplies often recommends Melcourt Orchid Bark as a superb, chunky bark mix with particles of between 5mm and 15mm, which provide the ideal conditions for orchid plants to extract moisture while allowing drainage that stops the orchid roots from developing rot. Fast drainage properties are essential, alongside moderately high humidity, to replicate the natural environments where orchids grow.

The key is to pay attention to your orchids to ensure they are healthy, with thick, rubbery leaves that are green and unmottled, robust, bright colour blooms, and white aerial roots with shiny green tips – the potting mix should be neither completely dry nor saturated, but just moist.

I bought these to keep the liner in my pond down, due to a problem with underground water pushing it up. They are perfect for the job, and would look good anywhere in the garden.
