Promix Coco-Perlite 90%-10% is recommended for Outdoor Growing – High Retention. Promix Coco-Perlite 90%-10% is an organic substrate that can be used in all hydroponics.
It consists of 90% Cocopeat and 10% Perlite. Coconut fibres, also included, retain a lot of water. By mixing in the correct ratio of Perlite, the medium retains the water for longer. This gives the grower complete control of the growing stages with the application of liquid fertilisers.
Coco Peat consists of processed coconut fibers and is a byproduct of the coconut industry which, without its usefulness to gardeners, would otherwise be disposed of. As a growing medium similar to sphagnum peat, coco peat, also called coir or coir dust, provides an alternative to potting soil featuring high water retention, suitable aeration and antifungal benefits.
Perlite may be the most commonly used growing medium in the world. This excellent product is used by hydroponic as well as organic gardeners. It has excellent “wicking” action yet doesn’t absorb water giving the plants roots plenty of oxygen. Commonly used in a mixture with vermiculite or Coco Peat.
Perlite, made from processed granules of volcanic rock, has excellent capillary properties and doesn’t compact, which allows for good aeration.
