Our virgin cork slabs are flat and vary in size from about 6 inches to over 12 inches wide and 12 to 30 inches long. Thickness varies from about a half inch to two inches with the majority being in between those numbers.
To get an idea of size to weight, you can figure roughly a square foot per pound, rarely under that, usually over. This material is widely touted to be the best and most durable substrate for mounting epiphytic plants; resisting rot and pests and lasting for many years under greenhouse conditions. The upper surface is rough and craggy and the underside, harder and fairly smooth. Great for use in terrariums or cages as it is non-toxic, and useful as a decorative background to display jewelry or other objects.
This product is harvested sustainably in Portugal from Quercus suber, the cork oak, and it’s main use is for bottle stoppers and shoe soles. This is a completely natural product. Easily broken into any size needed and can be ‘drilled’ with an awl or ice pick.
Quantity is sold by the pound.
I’ve purchased plants and bulk cork slabs from Tropiflora, and always been pleased with the price, quality, and friendly service! Items are packaged perfectly to arrive in good condition and shipped quickly!
I purchased 5 pounds and received 2 large beautiful slabs and a couple of small pieces. Would definitely buy again!
