Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this brand The best media for orchids is from better gro, honestly, try it and you will never buy other brand, i grow orchids and i've tried other main brands and this is the only one with the correct bark size!! January 13, 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 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
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
