Tree Fern Orchid Boards (also known as Tree Fern Plaques, Tree Fern Slabs, Tree Fern Mounts, and Xaxim Orchid Mounts) have been used for many years and are well regarded as the ideal mount for orchids, air plants, ferns and more.
Fernwood Orchid Boards are made from New Zealand Tree Fern and are softer and more moisture retentive than boards made from South American or Asian Tree Fern.
Fernwood Orchid Boards:
- Have a very natural colour and when wetted will turn to a darker chocolate brown.
- Offer excellent drainage and aeration
- Can be used in high humidity glass houses without deterioration
Because the Fernwood Orchid Board is soft, it is easy to push wires through the fibre, allowing the boards to be used as hanging mounts. The wire holds fast because of the strong fibrous nature of the board. Fernwood NZ Tree Fern Orchid Boards are suitable for both hobbyist and commercial growers and are available in various sizes to suit your application.
WHERE TO USE TREE FERN ORCHID BOARD:
Reptiles & Terraria/Terrariums
Terrariums are stunning environments for growing tropical indoor plants. If you add pets, such as frogs, lizards and tropical invertebrates, you’ll have a vivarium. To do that successfully, it’s important to match the habitat as close as you can with the animal’s natural surroundings.
From a starter kit to a professional set-up, the background and lining of your terrarium or vivarium will be key to its success. Our NZ tree fern tropical background is ideal for your live plants, orchids and epiphytes to give your animals an environment that mimics their habitat.
