Nutrients & Growing Media

As for planting media, the material that going to be used should have a high porosity, so it’s able to avoid water puddle and preventing fertilizer to be washed away. These are material that can be used as planting media: zeolites, red lavarock, roasted husks, cocopeat.

Avoid using a planting medium that allows making a puddle because it allows worms or other animals in the planting media.
