Bulk pine bark chips?

MuscledBear(10a)August 2, 2014

Looking for bulk pine bark chips for use to plant bromeliads and orchids. I'm in St Pete, so looking for somewhere local in the Tampa bay area.

Also looking for a place to buy - and online is ok for this one - bulk sphagnum moss. Again for the above listed plants.

When i lived up north, buying the bags from home depot was acceptable. Down here in Florida, the things grow so fast [and maybe i have so many more types now] that it is getting cost prohibitive to buy them in small bags.

I have not bought bulk pine in a few years but in the past got fines and minibark by the cubic yard in Tampa from:

Mulch Express
Cypress Creek

I get mine from "Timberline" though I never buy more than 6 cubic feet at a time and it's bagged into 2 cubes so storage is easy .
I grow most of my epi orchids in crushed lava does not rot nor sour can't be overwatered it does accumulate salts and is heavy so I use styrofoam underpotting Another down side is that it does not deter ferns they love it but then they also love chips lol gary
