I love the indoor gardening industry because there is always a plethora of new hydroponic products being introduced. Medical marijuana growers get to try many of these technologies before the mainstream agricultural industry even hears about them. With the “green” movement in full swing we are also seeing the introduction of many products that not only promote healthy medical marijuana plants but also a healthy planet.
Growstone Hydroponic Substrate is a highly porous, chemical and toxin-free hydroponic medium comprised of discarded glass. The medium is lightweight and dust-free, which makes it a pleasure to work with when compared to other hydroponic substrates. While most single ingredient substrates maximize either aeration or moisture retention, Growstone Hydroponic Substrate is designed to maintain a proper air and water balance in the root zone.
The combination of large and small pores is what makes Growstone Hydroponic Substrate so ideal for hydrogardening. In fact, Growstone Hydroponic Substrate holds 67% more water and 12% more air than standard clay pebbles (hydroton). In addition to its amazing air and water holding capability, Growstone Hydroponic Substrate’s unique composition releases plant absorbable silica throughout the plant’s life cycle. Silica is very important to the strength and structural integrity of the cell walls within a medical marijuana plant.
Growstone Hydroponic Substrate is compatible with any fertilizer regiment and is reusable for multiple crop cycles. It is never stripped mined or shipped long distances, like hydroton or perlite, making it not only a good choice for your plants but a great choice for the planet.
