These wonderful virgin cork tubes from Portugal are terrific in a variety of settings and uses. When used as a hanging container, an orchid "pot", or an orchid mount, these pieces are sure to add a great natural look to any setting. These extraordinary pieces are true natural works of art that are instant dramatic focal points, even before you put orchids in them! They are cut to stand on their own, but can be re-cut to your requirements, hung or attached as you wish. These are show stoppers.

Cork branches are excellent for mounting smaller plants and are beautiful in a variety of display settings. Cork trunks have lovely nooks and crannies for orchid roots to nuzzle in. The outside is a beautiful silvery grey and brown color punctuated by willowy looking contours. Each tube is unique and may have natural openings where branches developed. Our widest cork trunk tubes are terrific for larger specimen plants, or multiple smaller plants and will make for an impressive showpiece and display.

We are pleased to carry the finest grade natural virgin cork 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 the cork oak is carefully removed every 9 to 10 years by experienced professional harvesters after which the tree 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. Cork trunks typically have a seam created by this harvesting process.

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 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.
