CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Special Mix for Happy Orchids! I had not repotted my orchid plants living in our lanai for several years and I have to say that they are looking much healthier in their new medium! July 8, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed This mix has bark, charcoal and perlite. Unfortunately it also has some wood . It is as much wood as perlite and charcoal together. I had to throw wood away. Bark pieces are mostly flat and thin, which is not good for orchids ( it is better when they are cubes) . I had to work on this mix before planting my orchids. Next time I will get a big bag of bark, some perlite and add some charcoal from my fire place, and it will be 10 times chipper. March 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good quality Good quality bark. Not a lot of dust or ground bits. Perfect size for water and air to circulate. big enough bag to repot a few orchids without having a huge bag left over taking up space in the shed. March 24, 2015

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Not just for one type. My orchids continue to grow. I'm happy I found a mix for all types of orchids . It's lighter than the soil and makes it easy to move the pots around when I have to. Thanks April 10, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product, good quality. I use this product for all the orchids in my greenhouse In the past I repotted orchids at shows for IOS (Club fundraising).
