We've used this as a stand-alone media for epiphytic species with great results, as well as an addition to our usual LFS-based mix in order to add aeration as well as resistance to compacting due to the structure it provides to the mix.
Tree fern from New Zealand is unique in that it is soft, porous and spongy, and long lasting with excellent water holding capability. Best of all, because the team behind Fernwood NZ is committed to sustainable harvesting, New Zealand tree fern is not subject to CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) protection.
New Zealand leads the world when it comes to protecting its natural resources and we are proud to offer Fernwood products knowing that New Zealand tree ferns will be around for future generations to enjoy. When you buy a Fernwood Product you know it has been created with both you and the environment in mind.
