Perlite from R 39.00
Perlite growing medium is a natural volcanic rock that has been processed to create a lightweight, porous material suitable for gardening and horticulture. It is used to enhance soil structure, improve drainage and promote root growth. There are several applications for perlite as a flexible growing medium, including hydroponics, greenhouse cultivation, and container gardening. It is the finest choice for plants that require an aerated, well-draining growing medium because of its unique properties. Starting seeds in perlite is an excellent idea since it provides young plants with a clean, disease-free environment in which to thrive. One of perlite's key benefits is its ability to retain water while allowing additional to flow away. This characteristic makes it ideal for plants like cactus, succulents, and other arid-loving plants that need good drainage. Perlite also helps to avoid soil compaction, which is problematic in heavy, poorly draining soils. Perlite is an excellent growing medium for hydroponic gardening since it is light and porous. It also enables the efficient delivery of water and nutrients to plants while preserving a stable growing environment. The fact that perlite is a naturally existing material and doesn't require any preparation is another advantage of utilizing it as a growing medium. Due of its favorable effects on the environment, farmers and gardeners prefer it. Perlite growing media should be tried by anyone looking for a light, porous growing medium that promotes effective drainage and root growth. Due to its versatility and ease of use, it is the finest choice for a number of gardening and horticulture applications.

Horticultural Vermiculite from R 39.00
Natural mineral vermiculite works well with perlite to help you produce a growth medium that both maintains moisture and gives roots plenty of oxygen. Vermiculite has a potential to hold 200–300% of its weight in moisture, making it quite effective at doing so. It's simple to get the ideal balance between hydration and oxygenation for your plants when paired with perlite, which does not hold moisture. This pairing is particularly well-liked for hydroponic installations like drip and Ebb and Flow systems. Vermiculite is an affordable option, but it's crucial to remember that it shouldn't be utilized in isolation. Due to its great moisture retention, when used as a stand-alone growth medium, it can potentially suffocate plant roots. Nevertheless, vermiculite can encourage strong root development and flourishing plants when coupled with perlite or other substances. It's a mineral that is mined and looks a lot like mica rock. It has special qualities that make it so valuable for gardening when heated fast because it expands as a result of the production of inter-laminar steam.

Freedom Farms Seed Starter Growing Medium R 169.00
Freedom Farms Seedstarter is formulated in South Africa as a premium germination medium formulated to create the ideal conditions for seed germination. The finer soil matrix, excellent aeration, seedling specific nutrient levels and inoculation with beneficial microorganisms, are the main reasons for the high success rate of the Seed starter. Ingredients: Coco Coir, Fine Vermiculite, Perlite, Volcanic Rock Dust, Bone Meal, Gypsum, Fermented probiotic bran. Volume: 15L Application: – A fine matrix specifically formulated for seed germination – Free from pathogens and weeds – Excellent for all varieties of seeds – Suitable for both inorganic and organic fertilizer amendments Directions of use: Add germination soil to seedling tray and water thoroughly the first time. Plant seeds and water again lightly for seeds to settle. After the first drying cycle, keep the soil moist. Ideal watering pH for Freedom Farms Craft Soils Ideal pH 5.5 – 6.0 Pure coconut coir has a pH between 5.8 – 6.8. A substrate/soil pH of between 5.5 and 6.5 is ideal for plant nutrient uptake under both organic and inorganic fertiliser regimes. Freedom Farms Coco coir is buffered and charged with natural amendments. The high Calcium content of our amendments maintains the pH in the 6.5-6.8 range and will prevent a decrease in pH (substrate acidification) resulting from fertiliser application or waterings at a low pH. The soil pH is therefore buffered against decreasing pH. On the other hand, an incremental increase in pH resulting from tap water (pH 7-8.5) use can cause the soil pH to increase above the optimal range for nutrient uptake. The soil pH is therefore not buffered against increasing pH caused by using un-pH’d tap water. Watering with a pH of 5.5-6.0 will ensure the pH of the soil remains in the optimal range of 5.5-6.5. About Freedom Farms: Freedom Farms Craft Soils are complete, handcrafted* living soils, formulated* for optimal plant growth and performance in South Africa. Optimising our soils for root health is fundamental in achieving this. Perfectly aerated for optimum oxygen exposure to roots, whilst benefiting from the high water-holding capacity of coconut coir pith. A base mineral blend is added to all our soils to ensure long term Calcium and trace element availability as well as pH stability. Our Craft Soils are inoculated with probiotics and together with the naturally high diversity of microbes in worm castings, our soils are teeming with beneficial soil and plant microorganisms. This optimises nutrient cycling (organic nutrients) and suppresses soil pathogens, keeping the root zone healthy. Some soils are also supplemented with organic plant macro- and micronutrients for growers that want to depend less on additional inputs, whilst still reaping the full benefits. We take meticulous care in sourcing, formulating, preparing and blending the components of our Craft Soils. *Handcrafted – We blend in small batches and have a hands-on approach every step of the way to ensure product consistency. *Formulated – Both the physical and nutritional aspects of our soils are based on specific recipes which apply to specific requirements of different plant types or nutrient management systems.

Gold Label HydroCoco 60/40 Substrate R 395.00
Gold Label HydroCoco 60/40 Mix substrate is specifically designed for growing hydroponically. Dutch quality medium for hydroponics. Gold Label Hydrocorn and Coco is an ideal match for high water capacity, lower watering frequency and better rooting. We utilize the 8-16mm Hydrocorn from Gold Label and the purest Gold Label Coco to give you the perfect ebb and flood growing media which also works well in any pot based systems. The 60/40 mix allows you to feed less frequently than in straight Hydrocorn and gives a buffer on the watering times. Gold Label HydroCoco 60/40 is a mix of 60% RHP Gold Label Hydrocorn (clay pebbles) and 40% Coco. The combination of these two horticulture substrates and the long coco fibres improves capillary action, provides a good base for fast root development and decrease the number of times you need to water compared to clay pebbles. Volume: 40L Net weight: 18.5kg Recommended Nutrients: Coco Regime Imported straight to our Port Elizabeth harbor and available in South Africa with nationwide delivery to your door. Directions for use to get the best results with HydroCoco 60/40 Gold Label hydroCoco by itself is an almost inert substrate. You need to add nutrients when you first water the substrate (use your nutrients supplier,s recommendations) Unlike Coco you need to flush the substrate first time you use it in order to saturate the clay pebbles initially. Keep plugs or cubes wet after planting in order to prevent them from drying out. The recommended ph range is 5.2 - 6.5 however, this depends on the nutrients used. During the vegetive stage start with a lower pH (5.2-5.6) to balance the pH in your substrate, in the generative stage move to a slightly higher pH (5.9-6.3) We recommend using Gold Label Hydro nutrients on 60/40. These professional hydroponic nutrients' quality ingredients facilitate the plant's nutritional uptake process. As 60/40 is a much more airy substrate than the Coco you need to water more often, depending on container size and plant uptake. 2 to 3 feeds per day are generally enough for 60/40. Small size pots and bigger plants dry out the substrate quicker, so adjust the water frequency accordingly. We recommend using 60/40 with watering systems with a drain. Flush your substrate regularly to prevent salts from building up. You can use enzymes to flush or add them to the nutrient solution throughout the grow cycle. In a recirculating or waste to drain system use 30% drain. If you recirculate your nutrients make sure that the ph and EC levels stay within range. Work very clean tp prevent the spread of pathogens throughout the crop. Clean your tank and replace your nutrient solution at least once a week.
