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  6.75 pound bags. 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 and use gloves when handling.

1lb = 1.5 cups

In the absence of soil test results, apply 2.5 to 5 lbs per 100 square feet (2-4 Tbsp per plant) in early spring or fall and water thoroughly. Otherwise, use the guidelines below to achieve a pH of 6.5.

Current pH Amount per 100 square feet
6.0 3.5 lbs (5 cups)
5.5 7.5 lbs (10 cups)
5.0 11 lbs (15 cups)

4.0 17.5 lbs (24 cups)


Yes! She is thrilled with the orchid mix and used it ALL the next day. She thinks it is excellent material and be sure we will be back with another order. She has been collecting orchids for 41 years and said it is the best mix she has ever seen.

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.

I repotted it in the Imperial Monterey Orchid Mix that I had on hand, with a sad bloom or two still trying to hang on. Since then, it began growing new roots and leaves. The spike even began to grow/elongate, adding new buds, and rewarded me with 7 new blooms, the size of your palm. A testament that your products work wonders.

I LOVE EVERYTHING I BOUGHT FROM YOU GUYS! I'm your customer for life! When I first got my orchid mix I couldn't believe how nice it was! I've never seen such nice moss! I have suggested you to everyone I know that grows orchids. Your products are fabulous.

I am relieved to have finally found an online retailer who actually reads and responds to customer inquiries in a timely manner...My first order from was placed, confirmed, assembled and shipped in less than 12 hours!!!!! Truly Amazing..

I received the potting mix and I have to say that it is wonderful!! I was skeptical to spend a little extra money for the bark mix when I can go to Lowe's and get it for a fraction of the price. But...your mix speaks for itself! So clean, nice and easy to work with. It's the best and I plan on buying for you all again and again. Thanks so much!!

Since I had such success with that mix and the Paph mix, I have converted some of my Phals to the Imperial Mix...they are showing the same results. Strong growth, good roots and spikes. Your mixes are always fresh and distinctive. I have found nothing on the market like them and recommend them to all my orchid friends. Not sure what you put in them but keep it up.
