We now sell Orchiata and sphagnum moss

We have imported and now hold in stock the most praised orchid media – Orchiata and sphagnum moss.

Orchiata is orchid bark medium that is highly praised by everyone who ever used it. We grow our seedlings in it and they are doing great. Orchiata is NOT more expensive than its alternatives. It saves you time and effort.

Sphagnum moss comes in different grades. It is used for orchids that like more moisture. It is rot resistant, but it holds a host of beneficial bacteria. Sphagnum adjusts the pH and buffers the water to optimal range for plants and aquariums.  It is used for care of tropical frogs and snakes and for aquarium fish water conditioning.

We have also live sphagnum that grows in our greenhouse and can be used for aquariums and gardens.

Higher grade sphagnum for Neofinetia, may seem at first expensive, but this is because it is selected and packaged by hand. To achieve better look of your Neofinetia mounts higher grade sphagnum makes the job so much easier and quick. When I use lower grade sphagnum I resort to using fishing line which makes the change of the moss very difficult later on. With higher grade sphagnum this is unnecessary, since the moss holds the plant in place very nicely and when needs to be changed is removed easy.

We also have lower grades sphagnum and Chilean sphagnum in small packages or larger quantities. We can supply sphagnum in nursery size quantities.
