Plant Soil

Soil is probably the most traditional and widely used substrate for growing plants. It consists of a mixture of organic and inorganic materials such as clay, sand, silt and organic matter such as decayed plant material (humus). Soil provides essential nutrients to plants and helps retain water, ensuring proper hydration. Its composition can vary significantly depending on factors.

Coco

Coir is a natural fiber obtained from coconut husks. It is widely used as a substrate in horticulture due to its excellent water holding capacity and aeration properties. Coir is renewable, environmentally friendly and has a neutral pH, making it suitable for a wide range of plants.

Perlite

Perlite is a light, volcanic rock material that is processed into small, white granules. It is commonly used as a soil additive to improve aeration and drainage. Perlite is sterile and pH-neutral. When mixed with soil or other substrates, perlite prevents compaction and allows roots to access oxygen more easily. Its porous structure also helps retain moisture, promoting healthy plant growth.
