Cork bark comes from the The cork oak tree (Quercus suber). It is farmed in Portugal and can be harvested on average every 7-9 years. Cork bark is also a completely renewable and sustainable resource. Cork bark rounds, which are hollow, are peeled off during harvesting. It’s a very versatile natural material that has many benefits and uses and is the top choice of many herpers, hobbyists, and plant growers alike. Some of the uses of cork bark are:

Hardscaping: Cork bark can be used as a decorative and functional element in terrarium’s, vivarium’s, aquariums, and paludarium’s. It provides shelter, creates basking spots, and climbing surfaces for various animals and plants. It can also be used to create natural-looking backgrounds, ledges, and barriers.

Mounting: Cork bark can be used to mount epiphytic plants such as orchids, bromeliads, and tillandsias. The rough texture and water resistance of cork bark make it ideal for supporting these plants and mimicking their natural habitats.

Cork wood Properties:

  • Cork bark branches resist rot in damp & wet environments lasting much longer than conventional decorative wood pieces.
  • Cork wood is elastic and can recover from compression. This makes it ideal for manipulating hardscape pieces for that perfect look.
  • It is impermeable to air and water, and resistant to many acids. This prevents rot making it a great choice to plant epiphytic plant in or on it.
  • It is lightweight, which makes it suitable for scaping a terrarium, vivarium, or paludarium, adding little to no extra weight to your enclosure.
  • It is buoyant, which allows it to float in water, providing the perfect basking place for aquatic animals like turtles to bask.
  • It is biodegradable and renewable, which makes it an environmentally friendly material.
