GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Diatomite Rock is a naturally mined mineral composed entirely of the skeletal remains of trillions of microscopic, unicellular plankton called diatoms.
  • The porous aggregate particles wet rapidly and will absorb greater than 100% of their own weight in water, which they freely release to the surrounding soil and plant roots.
  • It is Non-toxic and contains Silica.
  • Diatomite protects against rot, and can slowly release silica to orchids that love it.
  • It is often used as a component in other orchid media.
  • With an ideal particle size of 10 mm - 25 mm, Diatomite Rock acts as a water and nutrient reservoir for plant roots enabling them to withstand common environmental stresses, such as drought and temperature extremes, more easily.
