About Growing Media

About Growing Media

Growing media is a soil composition that helps to create the ideal root zone for bedding plants including vegetable crops, trees, and shrubs. It is often referred to as potting soil, and is a mixture composed of peat moss, perlite, vermiculite, wood fiber and fertilizers.

Peat is usually the main raw material ingredient in growing media as it stimulates both plant growth and root development by improving porosity and soil structure. Peat is a naturally hydrophobic material causing difficulty in initial hydration and subsequent rehydration of the product.

How do wetting agents Work?

Wetting agents are materials used to lower the surface tension of irrigation water in contact with the potting soil. This allows the water solution to spread and enables a maximization of water intake into the soil in a shorter time. This process works for both initial irrigation and reapplication after the potting soil has become dry and hydrophobic. The commercial benefit provided to the grower is an even growth of their plants, which have larger roots, and finish with maximum plant weight at harvest and sale.
