Inert substrates general info

Inert substrates general info

The term growing on substrates is often used incorrectly. A substrate is synonymous with everything that a plant can grow in or even on. The substrate, or growing medium, therefore serves to keep the plant in place. Examples of substrates are potting compost, coco and rock wool.

The CANNA SUBSTRA nutrient line is specially formulated to provide the best results possible when used in combination with inert substrate. Rock wool, of all the inert substrate available, is the most common one. It is widely used in general horticulture because it ensures rapid development of good root systems. Additionally, it is easily managed and has good supportive properties. Plants grown in rock wool remain upright without extra support as long as the medium itself is supported.
