Grow Mediums


Growing media are materials that support the development of plants. A growing medium acts as a placeholder for the plant's roots, where gas and nutrient exchanges occur. Growing media can come in both liquid and solid form. Different types of growing media are used to cultivate various plants. Growing media is often created out of a mixture of raw materials to achieve an optimal balance of air and water holding the capacity for the plants to grow in. This optimal balance ensures that the media retains moisture for the plants
