Because all stores have this sales item in stock. Also, if a store is out of a product, they will see which stores nearby within the region has the product you want and they will ship it to the store on will-call. It is much more efficient to sent merchandise from another store than to order a product on-line. That is of course unless the item is in warehouse only.

Answer: 
Hello Jordan: Our Orchid Bark bark is made from Douglas Fir bark, which does contain phenols. Our orchid bark is “heat treated” so there is a likelihood of reduced levels. However, I'm not sure if phenols are safe to use as pet bedding, you may want to check with your pet's vet.

Answer: 
No. It has no fertilizer. But it may have dyes in it. You might want to consider coconut liner for hanging baskets also.

I used to be able to buy these Better-Gro barks in my Home Depot and in my Lowes, recently both stores stopped carrying them! I even drove to a store in a different city and it didn't have them either. Why? It's the best inexpensive bark I've been able to find. I'm very confused and disappointed.

Answer: 
Hello Jr: There is no dye in the bark. Under most conditions, the Orchid Bark last approximately 2 years. However, there are a lot of variables involved such as how wet it stays, how it is kept, or what amendments like charcoal, sponge rock , clay beads, lava, etc. are added to it. Those amendments help keep the mix drier, making it last even longer. Happy Blooming!

8 Qt. Orchid Bark is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11.
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!:(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rocks, Mold and Large Chunks I bought a bag of this to use with my plants and the bag had mold in it and my wife and daughtwer is allergic to mold so I had to put the plants outside and I hope that I can save my plants because of the mold. And also had some big rocks in the bag too not to mention that there was some big chunks of wood. I had hoped to have a better experience with this product.
