Hydroponic substrates unearthed

The ground level of your hydroponic garden

High quality substrate from Hyalite

Quality hydroponic substrates are the cornerstone of successful gardens. Substrates, or growing media, are the materials that supports strong plant growth. This material can vary from garden to garden, depending on what your plants require.

• Hydroponic substrates are usually a mixture of materials including soil, wood. compost, fibres and moss.

• Growing media supports plant growth, allows root development, and provides nutrients to plants.

To foster the best possible growth and yield for your plants, it's important that your substrate is of the highest quality. For expert advice on which substrate is right for your hydroponic garden, get in touch with Hyalite New Zealand.

How hydroponic substrates work

Hydroponic operations typically produce larger plants and better yields than traditional gardening methods. Hydroponic substrates need to facilitate and nurture this intense growth.

• Growing media is selected and then placed within hydroponic pots and buckets.

• Roots grow throughout the spaces between the growing media, allowing water and air to move freely.

• Microorganisms within the hydroponic substrate supply the plants with nutrients.
