Peat substrate mix 1

The peat substrate “Mixture 1” is a fine-structured (0-5 mm) prepared mixture, which is perfect for the propagation of cuttings, seedlings, etc. The substrate’s fine structure enables its use in stand and cartridge filling machines. The peat substrate “Mixture 1” is also suitable for use in planting machines. The substrate’s main component is white peat with fraction 0-5 mm, which has been produced from fractured block peat. The peat substrate “Mixture 1” is a substrate of medium fertilizer content – 1 kg of PG-mix 14:16:18/m³ of the substrate. In addition to the main fertilizer, micro-fertilizer has also been added to the substrate. The white block peat’s fraction 0-5 mm assures good water absorption qualities and aeration of the substrate. For regulating the substrate’s pH, limestone powder is used. The peat substrate “Mixture 1” is a substrate of medium acidity – pH (CaCl2) 5.5-6.5. To improve the substrate’s water absorption qualities, a special chemical substance and wetting agent Aqua Flow has been added to the substrate. Adding the chemical substance and wetting agent to the substrata is especially important in southern countries, where substrates tend to dry fast, which results in their decreased water absorption qualities. The peat substrate “Mixture 1” is suitable for growing the following plants/plant groupings: root crops seedlings, ornamental plant seedlings, sensitive plants (e.g. Saintpaulia, commonly known as the African violet) and many other plants.
