What's the typical size of a bark chip in this product?

What is the average or typical size of the bark chips in this product? From one review, it seems the chip size is quite variable. Are most of the chips about the average size, or are there roughly equal numbers of chips of many different sizes?
Asked by: Jayboard
Around dime size, maybe a little larger.

Is there any dye in it? If left to the elements, how quickly (about) will it decompose?

Asked by: Jr
I used this product right from the bag, no soaking, no bowling, mixed right with the bark I was already using. Marvelous result. I would imagine that the breakdown depends on the type of Orchid.

I use it to re-pot my Cymbidum Orchid and Oncidium Orchid plant. I use this product alone without mix it with other medium which it work out good so far. Due to Orchid Bark does not retain water very well but it is a good drainage medium. You have to pay attention to watering because it drys out very quickly. If the temperature at where you plant your orchid is warm, then I suggest you to water your Orchids plant every 2 to 3 days for using Orchid Bark. If you plant your Orchid at a humid and cold place where water does not evaporate fast, than you should water your Orchid plant every 4 days if you use Orchid Bark as the only medium. You should always pay attention to your Orchid to see if you need water because the weather at where you live might changes everyday. How much you have to water your Orchid depends on the everyday temperature at where you plant your orchids. I hope my information helps.

The bark is of the right size and there is no fertilizer. I prefer to add my own when needed. It is of excellent quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I thought it would be This stuff is more like mulch than what would normally be considered "Orchid Bark". The pieces are huge. About the size of a quarter. My local HD took it back for a refund no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my orchids love it this bark is a staple for my orchids, i've been using it for years. i bought 10 bags a couple of months ago and repotted dozens of my orchids. i need more. some of the pieces are big, you just break them up. there are also some that are quite small which is save out to repot my smaller orchids. and this is the best price around, even buying in bulk from nurseries and online retailers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Orchid Bark I have a greenhouse and the store in Lafayette doesn't carry orchid mulch. I will sometimes bring it home from Florida, but forgot the last time. I was very happy to find it on your website.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bulky& dirty The bark chips were way to large for orchids! There were tons of rocks inside, I like a good mix but online it doesn't advertise the product to have rocks! Also there was mold on some of the bark pieces. There was a lot of bark dust but that wasn't as big as an issue. I think the worst part was the time it took to be delivered. Overall I will not buy this product ever agin!:(
