Mountain Orchids


3 Lb bag - Limestone Chips

For those without local access, these Limestone Chips are offered here for use as an additive to growing mixes for plants of calcareous (chalky or limestone) habitats  A good number of the newer Begonia species coming out of China and Southeast Asia are known to grow on limestone rock and cliff surfaces. Incorporating these chips in small amounts (try starting with a 1:10 ratio with your favorite media), may help reproduce a more suitable media for these lime-loving species.

These Limestone Chips have been pre-screened to remove excess fines and dust. They have not been washed - so expect some fine particles to remain.  Note: Personally, I do not wash / rinse before using, but you may if you wish.

Sold in 3 lb bags and each is shipped seperately from plants.
