Orchid media will decompose in time and as the media breaks down, the orchid roots receive less air and start to "choke". Charcoal is a great filter, bugs hate it and it prevents root rot.
WillGro custom-blended media has been packaged dry for long storage life. Our packaging allows the product to breathe.
You must soak media in water for 2 to 24 hours prior to use. Drain of the excess water prior to planting your orchid. Contains Hardwood charcoal - no fines.
We also carry activated carbon.
