Does anyone know where i can buy Orchid Bark Mix?

I can only find Orchid Compost, which isn't the same thing as far as i know.

Thanks in advance.

What type of an Orchid do you have, you could make your own mix, They do in the Bots consisting of a mixture of Bark,Charcoal, perilite and Potting compost.
depending on what type of orchid you have.

Thanks Greengage. It's a Phalaenopsis.

To be honest i'd rather buy it ready mixed, I only have one plant and would prefer not to buy the individual components.

Thanks again Greengage.

I finally tracked down Orchid bark to Indoor Plants on Patrick Street in Dublin - http://www.indoorplants.ie/.

It's €3.99 for enough to repot one plant.

Thank you to the Irish Orchid Society for suggesting that i try them. http://www.irishorchidsociety.org/
