PRO-MIX HPCC MYCORRHIZAE
HPCC MYCORRHIZAE – high porosity, chunk coir
When seeking the ideal balance between air porosity, drainage capacity and water retention, PRO-MIX HPCC is the solution growers select. With unique chunk coir reducing soil compaction and carefully selected peat moss, this formulation provides qualities promoting growth and offering a delicate, well-calculated control over the root zone. PRO-MIX HPCC provides growers what they need to optimize the quality of their hanging baskets, large containers and long-term crops.
- Foliage plants
- Potted flowering plants
- Vegetable transplants
- Potted trees and shrubs
- Greater frequency of dry-down periods (compared to general purpose peat-based mixes)
- Grower can more easily leach fertilizer salts during crop cycle
- Difficult to over-water
- Well suited for undesirable, year-round weather conditions
- VeriFlora® is an agricultural sustainability certification and eco-labeling program recognized as the gold-standard in the floriculture and horticulture industries.
- Improves fertilizer uptake; reduces fertilizer costs
- Increases the resistance of plant to stresses; reduces maintenance costs
- Optimizes results without changing growing practices
- Increased root mass, flower production, plant size, yield
- Improved water uptake and increased drought resistance
Advice from our specialist
PRO-MIX HPCC MYCORRHIZAE is a blend of peat moss, chunk coir and perlite designed for hanging baskets, long-term planters and containerized perennials. This growing medium has a high water holding capacity, and care should be taken not to overwater early in the crop cycle. The chunk coir retains water like peat-based growing media; however, it does not require a wetting agent or compact like peat moss.
PRO-MIX HPCC MYCORRHIZAE requires less frequent waterings than other growing media and provides long-term "ease of rewetting" to benefit growers and end users.
Horticulture Specialist Troy Buechel talks about one of PRO-MIX growing media components which is the coir.
SPHAGNUM PEAT MOSS (65-75%)
Canadian Sphagnum peat moss is a natural, organic matter that comes from a peat bog. This primary resource is carefully harvested by vacuum harvesters. Peat moss comes in various fibrosity and levels of decomposition. Once carefully graded, peat moss assures that qualities of each grade are optimized for based on grower and uses for a final product reaching high quality requirements.
Coir is a natural product which comes from the exterior envelop of an aged coco fruit. We have carefully selected a material providing the 3 important following qualities for a high-quality professional growing medium:
- Physical (particles type and size)
- Chemical (washed material with a very low salinity level)
- Microbiological (exempt from any pathogens)
Perlite is an alumino-silicate ore of volcanic origin. The raw ore is crushed, graded and screened in various particle sizes. Perlite has a high total-porosity and improves drainage and air porosity.
Used to adjust pH to optimum range. Also a source of Calcium and Magnesium.
A wetting agent is a substance that reduces the surface tension of water, allowing water to penetrate and uniformly wet growing media.
MYCORRHIZAE - PTB297 TECHNOLOGY
Mycorrhizae - PTB297 Technology is a Biological Growth Enhancer that increases the yield of flower, fruit and vegetable plants by extending the root system to acquire the most of available nutrients in the soil. Mycorrhizae also improve resistance to root diseases and stresses.
