People often get confused with choosing the next suitable pot for their plant. As a general rule of thumb, Orchids like to be transplanted into the next sized pot that measures a few centimetres wider than the original, every second or third year.
To correctly select the next sized pot for your plant, simply measure the original pot's diameter at the top. The table below shows more about which size to choose next, base on your current pot's diameter.

We source our Orchid Bark from well-respected companies in Southern England, which has tight restrictions over quality control & peat-free regulations. Your compost will come in a resealable bag, so don't worry about having extras! The soil will stay fresh for eighteen months when stored in a cool place with the bag's top securely fastened.
Baby Bio is a concentrate, meaning that this product can make up to 200L. Mix 5 - 10 drops to ½ litre of water (1 pint, a typical water bottle), OR ½ capful to 1 litre (2 pints). The exact amount of drops isn't a priority, but be sure always to keep your plants well-fed to optimise their overall health. (NPK - 10.6 - 4.4 - 1.7).
To find out more about how frequently you should feed your plant, search for the specific-plant article via the Menu's 'Search' function. Generally, Orchids are best fed every forth water in the spring and summer & every sixth in the colder months for their dormancy. Whilst they're in bud or flower, fertilise them every four waters to promote longer-lasting blooms, regardless of the time of year.
We'll only use pots that are top quality, recyclable and promote good drainage in the soil. If you already have a pot to use, simply click 'No' and just receive the compost size selected above!
