Here at rePotme we work hard to provide the finest mixes, media and assorted items for you that we can find. We wanted to add Lime to our extensive list of media, but not just any Lime, it had to be the right product for our plants and yours. Dolomitic Lime is the right product for orchids and other fine plants and we have it in 1.5 and 3 pound tubs and 6.5 pound bags for your consideration now. For those who may wonder what the difference is between Lime types you might find at the local hardware or the big box stores, the following descriptions should be helpful. Magnesium is the key difference, and our Dolomitic Lime is what you want to use if you need to raise PH. To test PH we offer a convenient and easy-to-use PH Test Strip Kit.
Calcitic Lime: Mined from natural limestone, calcitic lime is then crushed up into finely ground powder granules. Pelletized lime is created from finely ground lime plus a cementing agent that is added to form pellets. Pellets are more expensive but easier to use and eliminate the dust problem of granular lime. Pellets dissolve in water so it's important to water thoroughly after application. Calcitic lime also contains calcium, a necessary element to encourage healthy plant growth. Calcitic lime is most often applied to lawns but may also benefit garden plants, shrubs and flowers.
Dolomitic Lime: Dolomitic lime is mined in the same manner as calcitic lime and is also crushed and sold in either finely ground powder form or pellets. Dolomitic lime provides both calcium and magnesium. Dolomitic lime is most often applied to lawns but may also benefit garden plants, shrubs and flowers.
We recommend you store lime in a cool dry place.
“This fall I religiously followed your advice, creating an environment of shortened
days and lower temps in order to encourage blooming...I was successful. FINALLY!! Thank you, thank you!!
Both of my plants decided to bloom and they look beautiful. I wanted to share the good news and
my gratitude with you. Thanks again!”Laurie J.
“The potting medium you sent is gorgeous!! It's superior to the bark I've been
buying at Lowe's. I can't imagine what (my orchids) will do when I put them in your potting mix. It even
smells fresh!! Many, many thanks. I'll be ordering from you again.”
