RAMSI TURVAS - Peat Substrate

  • Peat substrate is based on blonde sphagnum peat. The fertilizer level is medium and the pH is adjusted with limestone.

    The added fertilizer gives the young plants all the nutrients for a good start. Later you should start adding the fertilizer with water when the plants have taken root, approximately two weeks after planting. More precise timing and fertilizer concentration depends on the growth of plants and growing conditions.

    Recommended use:

    • Seeding
    • Cuttings
    • Potplants
    • Greenhouse
