Our Core Ingredients
COCONUT COIR FIBER
Coconut Coir Fiber is a renewable resource. It increases water and nutrient retention, improves drainage and aeration while inhibiting pests, weeds and disease. Available potassium ratio protects plants from disease and promotes growth.
Coconut fiber not only boasts some great ecological qualities but it also has outstanding water and air holding capacity. It can hold eight to nine times its own weight in water without becoming anaerobic-even when saturated it can still hold on to around 22%. Coco coir is therefore a forgiving medium, allowing roots access to enough oxygen even when watered a little too enthusiastically.
Coco coir also boasts antifungal and root promoting properties. Coco coir can suppress and protect plants from dreaded root diseases such as pythium and phytophthora.
Worm Castings stimulate plant growth and reduce soil erosion and compaction. It is a natural form of released plant food that reduces toxins from the soil to keep plants healthy. The roots will increase significantly resulting in a healthier plant that requires less water.
Mycorrhizae are nature’s soil inoculants, tiny fungal filaments that work symbiotically with plant roots to help them absorb more moisture and nutrients. They also release enzymes, which help break down nutrients into forms more easily utilized. Other benefits include: Encourages vigorous root growth, Reduces transplant shock, minimizes need for supplementation by increasing uptake and increases drought tolerance
Our Norwegian Kelp contains many wonderful things such as over 70 minerals and trace elements, growth hormones, vitamins, enzymes, and proteins. Kelp promotes better seed germination and mineral uptake. Kelp develops more extensive root systems, accelerate growth, increase fruiting and flowering, provide resistance to disease, insects and frost. One key element in Kelp is called Cytokinins (CK). Cytokinins are a class of plant growth substances that promote cell division, or cytokinesis, in plant roots and shoots.
Polymers absorb, store and deliver water and nutrients on a consistent level. Our potassium polyacrylate polymers are more environmentally friendly, breaking down first into ammonia salts and then nitrogen and CO2 in about 4 to 6 months. Polymers are not included in our organic products.
A balanced, very light seed starting nutrient charge (NPK) Nitrogen-Phosphorous-Potassium. Carbon to Nitrogen 30:1
