more Imperial Bonsai Soil Mixes
Here you will find Bonsai Soil Mixes that incorporate free draining highest quality mediums from around the world and also right here in the USA. Our mixes focus on encouraging oxygen to the roots, avoiding compacting, promoting water flow-through, and balanced PH levels.
One orchid mix doesn't have to fit all, and our experience has taught us that orchids are each as unique as the environment they are growing in. Our mission is to provide you with the highest quality orchid mixes for your environment and growing conditions.
We use old fashioned hand blending to create all of our mixes which treats the medium gently and protects the unique qualities and characteristics of each ingredient. Our mixes are hand mixed and packaged just hours or days before you order them which ensures you get fresh mix for your plants. Once you see for yourself the difference a fresh mix from the highest quality ingredients makes compared to store brands you won't ever want to go back to those inferior mixes again.
All of our potting mixes are available in convenient resealable bags. Each standard bag of orchid potting mix is a generous overstuffed 13 inch x 18 inch size. We mix our standard size bags from 12 quarts of media. For customers needing larger quantities we offer CUBES which hold multiple bags worth of Orchid Mix. Our smallest size, the MINI Bag, holds over one quart of mix.
storing it in a way that will allow any moisture to escape.
The CUBE is available with any of our rePotme Potting Mixes (except Inorganic). Available in three different sizes from the Small at over 2 bags to the Large at over 5 standard bags of Potting Mix. Each CUBE includes 1/2 doz plant labels and 1 each of butterfly, bumblebee and dragonfly clips. If purchased separately, this quantity of Orchid Mix would cost substantially more. Cube and liner can easily be closed for use at a later time.
Q: How many Imperial Orchid Mixes have you introduced and why are they so popular?
A: We now have 9 Imperial Orchid Mixes organized by genera and plant type like our original Classic Orchid Mixes. While our original Classic Orchid Mixes are terrific mixes, we have been searching for medias that are really extraordinary and as we have found them and added them to our offerings we realized that they really provided an opportunity to stand on their own and not be simply and easily just combined with other existing medias like coconut husk, fir barks or Chilean sphagnum. We thought that making mixes with none of these traditional medias would be a great alternative for a variety of reasons. Some people and plants need more choices. Some don't like the dust of fir. Some don't like coconut husk. Some prefer AAA New Zealand Sphagnum to the less costly and less fluffy Premium Chilean. Based on our order flow since introducing the Imperial Orchid Mixes we know our customers have agreed with our thoughts. We use all of our mixes ourselves and each has its place in our view.
Q: What goes into the Imperial Orchid Mixes?
A: Each Imperial Orchid Mix is unique, and various ones contain AAA New Zealand Sphagnum, Imported Cork Chips from Portugal, Orchiata™ Monterey Bark from New Zealand, and other medias that round out the mix, like sponge rock, or rice hulls, or tree fern etc. Each ingredient is spelled out completely so our customers know precisely what they are buying, just like with our Classic Orchid Mixes - no "secret" ingredients. These are very special mixes, and are perhaps as much defined by what doesn't go into them as what does. For example, we made a decision to not have any Coconut products in the Imperial Orchid Mixes. Not because they are bad, but because we want to have a clear alternative. Kind of like a vegetarian menu is an alternative in a restaurant. No fir bark exists in the Imperial Orchid Mixes. The bark we use for these exclusive blends is Monterey. The long fibered Sphagnum we use is AAA New Zealand. The only place you will find cork in our mixes is in the Imperial Line unless you design your own in our Select-A-Blend section.
Q: What is so special about cork?
A: Many orchids love to grow on cork plaques, and in cork tubes which we think look great too. The reason these orchids love cork is because it doesn't get sopping wet, resists mold, and has craggy surfaces for roots to burrow into. Cork chips, chunks and nuggets make a marvelous addition to mixes because they impart these same qualities and also keep the mix open and airy. They look fantastic in the mix too, and the top of the mix seems to stay fresh and clean looking for longer stretches of time.
Q: Why are there All-purpose Orchid Mixes?
A: In each of our Mix lines (Classic and Imperial) we wanted to create a mix that is based as much on genera as on root type. With so many different species of orchids, it would be a great challenge to have a mix for each, so we wanted to give our customers the ability to match a mix up with a specific plant based on characteristics if not by genera/name. We created two of these, one in the Imperial line and one in the Classic line. All of that said we now make over 25 unique exclusive mixes for our customers.
