COIR AND PEAT: AN OPTIMUM ROOTING SUBSTRATE FOR PROPAGATION©

J. Bonin
An optimum rooting substrate for propagation should always consist of the proper levels of air and water (balanced levels), along with an adjusted proper pH level for nutrient uptake. The base of this substrate can be peat, coir or a combination of both. By providing an optimum rooting substrate for cuttings or finished growing containers, it will ensure that these items will get off to a strong start, while reducing or minimizing cultural issues that may arise over time in production due to the compaction of the substrate.
