If you prefer to mix your substrate yourself we recommend to use Kiwí Orchid Bark (KOB) and Seramis rugged clay granulate at a volumen ratio 2:1. In our opinion this is the best mix you can offer to your orchids. You get both ingredients in our shop
We import the KOB for you in an energy-efficient manner by sea directly from the producer in New Zealand, Bark Products Taranaki. Kiwi Orchid Bark has clear advantages over European bark due to the higher content of essential oils and decomposes much more slowly, so you don’t have to repot as often. This also conserves natural resources – as soon as you open the KOB pack you will know what we are talking about. Seramis delivers the coarse clay granules (this one is not commercially available, only from us) directly to us. You can get both substrate components in our webshop.
