The Atami Cocos Substrate is unique in the fact that it is a coco with light fertilizer included, sufficient enough for the 1st week of plant growth. The buffering ensures the grower has optimum control of pH levels. After the first week you can add water with liquid fertilizers and stimulators to gain optimal growing results. Because of the structure of coco, it can store nutrients that are continually available for the plant.
Cocos Substrate is produced under controlled conditions, which is an assurance of quality and offers the ability to use it over and over again after each growing cycle. It can absorb plenty of water in a short period of time and can also deliver water rapidly and abundantly.
The roots also have plenty of available oxygen, which keeps them active. Despite the absence of residual water, there is always enough humidity for the plant.
Coco substrate is light and stable and is one of the best mediums for providing oxygen to the roots of the growing plants. Atami coco substrates are internationally certified by RHP, a foundation whose aim is to optimize the quality of growing mediums.
The coconut fibres have been washed, steamed and buffered to ensure that the substrate is free from any pathogens and unwanted elements, giving an optimum growing substrate that is suitable for both seeds and cuttings.
