Expanded Clay Pebbles from R 60.00
The best hydroponic growth medium for both novice and expert gardeners is expanded clay pebbles. Our expanded clay pebbles, also known as LECA or Hydroton, are created from organic and sustainable clay and heated to a temperature of 650 degrees Celsius, producing air-filled, lightweight pebbles with a size range of 16 to 25 mm. Expanded Clay Pebbles are the best growth medium for hydroponic and aquaponic systems because they provide the proper mix of air and moisture. Hydroponics, which uses water instead of traditional soil-based growth techniques, is a very effective and environmentally friendly approach to grow plants. Our Expanded Clay Pebbles are an economical and sustainable option for your hydroponic system since they are so simple to use and can be recycled for several growth cycles. Also, they are pH-neutral, ensuring that your plants get the precise nutrients they require to flourish. Just rinse the expanded clay pebbles completely to eliminate any extra dust or dirt before adding the correct amount to your hydroponic pot. Making sure the roots are well buried, place your plant in the stones and give water and fertilizer as necessary. The pebbles' superior drainage and aeration capabilities will keep your plants healthy and growing, and they will also hold in ample moisture. Available sizes: 5L & 50L
Rockwool Starter Plug R 2.50
Stonewool/Rockwool is recognised the world over as the ideal hydroponics growing substrate. Rockwool is known for it’s quality, consistency and performance against other substrates. Rockwool is manufactured by melting basaltic rock and spinning the molten mix into fibers which are then air cooled and compressed into the blocks we use today. By adjusting the amount of pressure, the density of the medium is adjusted. The large slabs can be cut into smaller slabs and propagation blocks for easy handling in the hydroponic and horticulture industry. Environmentally friendly. Light weight. Naturally a medium with plenty of aeration. Easy to handle, cut and install. Comes in a range of sizes from propagation cubes to large slabs. Please note that these are sold individually per block. There are 98 rockwool cubes per sheet.
Scrog Net - Screen of Green R 30.00
Horticultural Netting, commonly known as SCROG (Screen of Green) netting, is a durable and rigid product made out of polypropylene, specifically designed for the structural support of horizontal and vertical growth. Whether used vertically to provide support for climber crops or horizontally to maintain an even canopy, the uses and applications for horticultural netting goes far and wide. It is 1.4 meters wide and is sold per metre. In vertical horticulture the netting is typically installed 30cm above the grow medium. For crops that grow very tall, you can run strips measuring 1.4m wide and as high as needed. For crops that don't grow as tall but still grow vertically, you can run strips 1.4m high and as wide as needed. In horizontal horticulture an initial layer of Scrog is installed horizontally over your crops with as many additional layers above that as needed. A net fastening structure is usually constructed so that the netting can be tightly stretched over your crop allowing the grower the ability to support, train and manipulate growth into an even canopy. Advantages of using horticultural netting: Increases plant density by expanding the growth surface along the netting. Increased sun exposure. Increased aeration within the garden. Protection of flowers and fruits through structural support. Less chances of mold and fungus growth. Increase in number of flowers and fruits harvested. Decreased chances of accidental damage to fruits and flowers. Extends the life span and general health of plants. Carefully designed to not cut or hurt plants in any way.

Mycoroot Supreme R 69.00 R 80.00
Premium Mycorrhizal, Mycoroot, is the home of the organic mycorrhizal fungus. Mycoroot Supreme is an organic microbial fertilizer that will help enhance root structure by doubling it in size, boosts yield, and production. What are Mycorrhizal Fungi? Mycorrhiza means “fungus root.” These are beneficial fungi found in undisturbed soils These fungi form a symbiotic, mutually beneficial relationship with 90% of all plant roots The host plant receives mineral nutrients from the fungus The fungus obtains sugars from the host plant There are several types of mycorrhizal associations The most commonly encountered are the arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi. How do they function? The fungus grows using fungal filaments called hyphae The filaments grow both inside and outside of the roots The fungus is intimately associated with the plant roots Providing a link between the soil and the plant They extend the plant rooting system improving root functions They allow for better exploitation of the soil environment They increase the surface area available for nutrient uptake They make nutrients soluble which usually are not accessible to plant roots They influence the soil environment covered by the fungal filaments Encouraging the growth of beneficial bacteria They ward off unwanted organisms which can cause plants diseases Such as eelworms and root rot They produce a biological glue That promotes soil stability and increases moisture penetration and aeration of the soil Characteristic AM fungal structures formed within the roots of a host plant. Characteristic AM fungal structures formed within the roots of a host plant. A = finely branched arbuscules formed within plant cells. V = vesicle produced by some AM fungi required for the storage of carbon compounds. IRH = intraradical hyphae grow between the root cells. These structures are only visible once the roots have been specially prepared in the Mycoroot laboratory and are visible under a high powered microscope. So what is the problem? Unfortunately, because the soil and the beneficial organisms in this environment will not be regarded as a valuable resource, disturbance, land degradation, and application of chemical inputs, particularly those containing high levels of phosphates, and the non-discriminate use of some pesticides, have resulted in depleted natural populations. So what is the solution? To maximize the benefits from these AM fungi, have the mycorrhizal status of your soil tested. How to use: Mycoroot is used during transplanting. It helps with plant growth, health, and flowering. Add 5-10ml (1-2 teaspoons) per transplant depending on the size of the plant. Sprinkle at the base of the plant's roots in the whole during transplant and this should stop the shock of transplant, also helps with the uptake of nutrients and water. Size of container: 200ml
