It is harvested under strict New Zealand government control designed to ensure the sustainability of the kuripaka for generations to come. Fernwood substrate is unique compared to others in that it has the ability to hold moisture without becoming waterlogged, it is slow to compost, it's smell and texture encourage natural burrowing behaviour and it is an excellent growing media for live plants especially orchids.

    New Zealand tree fern bark

    Super easy to work with. Holds roots solid and steady. I repotted some of my unhappy orchids to see how they’ll do in new potting media. They already seem better. Time will tell. A lot of media for the money.
