Debco Orchid Coarse Mix contains quality key additives to deliver optimal growth for epiphytic Orchids such as Cattleyas, Oncidiums and Dendrobiums. Ideal for 6 inch
or greater pots, this mix is specifically formulated from premium graded pine bark with superior drainage and aeration for optimal plant establishment and development.

When to use


  • Fertiliser NPK - Nutrients nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium for healthy growth
  • Wetting Agent - Ensures nutrients get to the root zone 
  • Free Draining - Simulates the growing conditions of epiphytic plants
  • Calcium - Supports nutrient uptake and stronger plant cells
  • Coarse Bark - Provides ideal aeration for roots
  • Materials used in the production of Debco potting mixes are sourced from renewable and sustainable resources where possible


  • Superior, very open mix developed for growing large Orchids including Cymbidium Orchids, Cattleyas and Epiphytes in pots over 6 inches


Debco Orchid Coarse Mix is ready to use straight from the bag with no further additives required.

  1. Select a new pot that will comfortably accommodate the plant for the next 2 years.
  2. Place the plant into the pot ensuring the bulb is level with the top of the pot.
  3. Fill new mixture around the root system whilst holding the plant, and by gently tapping the top work the mix in and around the entire root system.
  4. Fill the pot to the top rim of the pot with mix.
  5. Lightly water and place tray in a warm sunny location.


  • A balanced fertiliser was added at manufacture but additional fertiliser may be required in time, depending on plant needs.
  • Feeding is critical to flowering because without sufficient food, the plant’s bulbs will not grow large enough to flower in the following year.
  • The easiest way to feed your Orchids is by topping up with controlled-release fertiliser when required. For even better results, you can supplement with a soluble fertiliser during the warmer months.
  • Plants should be divided and re-potted with new potting mix when they outgrow the pot or after 24 months.
