rePotme is happy to carry the finest grade natural cork chips from Portugal. Cork is a natural product that is produced from the bark of the Cork Oak or quercus suber tree, which grows in countries around the Mediterranean, predominately in Portugal and Spain. The bark of a cork tree is carefully removed every 9 to 10 years by experienced professional harvesters and the tree then grows a new thick coat of bark, almost like sheep grow wool! Cork harvesters cycle through the trees in a manner that creates a reliable source of this unique wood. Cork is a renewable resource, the average life span of a cork tree is more than 200 years. Orchids love growing in, on and around cork like the type we carry because the roots work their way in and around the craggy surfaces and texture. The added benefit of cork for orchids is that it holds virtually no water, lasts very very long and mixes well with other media to make spectacular mix combinations. Mixes made with cork are typically quite open and airy which is perfect for most orchids. Extra Small Cork Chips, Small Cork Chips and Large Cork Chips are also available.
We carry multiple sizes of cork pieces: extra small is less than 1/4 inch, small is 1/4 inch, medium is 1/2 inch and large is 1 inch. You can also find cork mounts and cork tubes in our Orchid Supplies section. The mounts are also from Portugal and are solid larger pieces as big as 8 inches by 8 inches or even larger by special request.
