We avoid the use of soil thanks to our growing medium composed of coconut fiber and peat, which allows us to recreate the perfect growing conditions.
The coconut fibre plug is a growing medium that holds the ideal amunts of water and humidity for plants to grow and roots to develop.
The porosity of the plug promotes root growth. Keep an eye on any roots sticking out of the sides of the plug, they are a good sign! They indicate that your plants will grow healthy and strong.
It is composed of 90% coconut fiber and 10% peat, so it is totally compostable and free of chemicals
