More About Virgin Cork Bark

Cork is the bark of the cork oak tree, which produces a layer of cork every nine years. It's sustainable too taking the bark off does not kill the tree.

Virgin cork is the cork bark that comes from the cork tree the first time it is taken from the tree when it is 30 years old. It is too rough and irregular to be used for cork stoppers. It is light weight, rot resistant, non-toxic, soft and buoyant.

Virgin cork is an environmentally and ecologically friendly, renewable product. It's a great medium for mounting orchids or any plant that needs epiphytic-like conditions. It is a natural product, so each piece is unique.

Virgin cork can be used for terrariums and reptile habitats; cork tubes are ideal for frogs, reptiles, snakes, lizards and other animals to hide, float or climb.
