Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service Fast Excellent Service. Product was delivered on time in excellent condition. October 20, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 1, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 13, 2011
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 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!:( March 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 22, 2013
