MIXES

Bark and Coconut base mixes designed specifically for the various orchid varieties

Please specify bark or coconut when ordering

Bark is considered the “tried and true” material, but future availability is questionable

Coconut is relatively new, lasts 50% longer, costs less to ship & the supply is easily replenished

Methods of ordering

  • Print and fill in the following order blank with check or credit card info. Existing customers can be billed, check payment within 30 days, if desired.
  • Email your order to rfs@orchidmix.com with your phone number and we will call for credit card info if required or you can email and call in your own credit card.
  • Call in your order. You may get an answering service so leave a phone number in case there is a question.

I am often asked how many pots will it fill?  The following is submitted as a guideline only as variables on the number or roots and differences in manufacturer’s pot sizes vary.
