Orchiata Premium New Zealand Orchid Bark
Orchiata is a unique and sustainable orchid-growing substrate produced from the finest
quality, 100% pure New Zealand Pinus radiata bark. Its solid bark particles are resistant to
chipping and composting, lengthening repotting time. Used by leading commercial orchid
growers to grow strong plants with resilient root systems.
The natural beneficial properties of New Zealand Pinus radiata are enhanced by our exceptional production processes. Specialised, purpose built machinery as well as manual labour, is used to create Orchiata.
At Daltons the machinery and production systems are top quality, allowing us to control the bark manufacturing process to tight specifications. The history, experience and technical information collected over 20 plus years has allowed us to refine our process.
We have quality control procedures in place at all stages of processing to ensure Orchiata meets our quality standards. Throughout production great care is taken to ensure only the highest quality Orchiata leaves our factory.
