Does unused bark go bad?
I'm repotting an orchid for the first time... from bark to bark. I have some unused orchid bark that is several years old... and has been stored properly. Is it still good? Can unused bark also decay in such a way that it loses nutrients/minerals?
My other question I can probably find in a FAQs. I removed as much bark as I could, but the root are still clinging to a lot of pieces. I guess I should ignore that and continue with the transfer?
