Hmmmm! My local big box store has fir bark in bags as well as orchidbark mix. I don't use the orchidbark mix with the orchids I have as I find it to be too fine a mix, breaks down too soon. I will PM you the store name so youcan check to see if they have bark available in your area, too. Mostly I use LECA (porcelaine clay balls) in a semi-hydro set up.
