An amazing product which we started using during the pink bark shortage and we were completely blown away by the results. Absolutely fantastic for aroids as it is both water retentive but also allows a huge amount of air to circulate around the roots. This Tree Fern fiber has become our go to medium for seedlings and germinating seeds that do not want a large amount of moisture around them while germinating. It can be used on its own or incorporated into a mix best suited for your growing conditions.
the biggest complaint we had when we started using it was all the fibrous chunky tree fern which made repotting so much harder than it needed to be, and removing it was a real pain in the BLEEP! we loved this product so much and started to use so much of it we decided to get a commercial grade sifting machine to remove all the debris. You may still find one or two strands that wiggle their way through the grate, but it is less than 1% of what you would get before. our bags are ready to be used.
This product is supplied to us by the premium distributor of New Zealand Tree Fern. It is completely natural and NEVER treated with any chemical whatsoever. It is also sustainably harvested which was of utmost importance to us while sourcing.
