We have the good vinyl plant tags that you can write on either side with in pencil, and they won't fade or crack. Sold in bundles of 30 for $5 at the meetings.
Orchid Potting Mixes

Potting Mixes

Coarse mix is a mixture of clay pebbles, large Orchiata bark, sponge rok and charcoal. It is a freely draining mix that is great for cattleyas and dendrobiums, $5 for a gallon bag. We also have a soilless mixture for phalaenopsis. This is a more water retentive mix that is half sponge rock and half Pro-Mix HP, $3 for a gallon bag or two for $5. Email us what you want and we'll bring it to the meeting. If you want large quantities, you can bring a 5 gallon bucket over to Sue and Terry's and we'll blend up a custom mix for you.
