Horticulture Specialist Troy Buechel talks about one of the active ingredients contained in our PRO-MIX growing media: MYCORRHIZAE.
SPHAGNUM PEAT MOSS (10%)
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.
PROCESSED SOUTHERN PINE BARK (85%)
PRO-MIX BK25, BK55 and NCX are formulated with processed, aged yellow pine bark from the forests of the mid-Atlantic region of the US. This pine bark is screened, partially composted and aged to produce a coarse base ingredient for blending PRO-MIX growing media to add bulk density, drainage and air-porosity.
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.
