"The class of those who have the ability to think their own thoughts is separated by an unbridgeable gulf from the class of those who cannot"

Soilless Growing Medium
When considering a growing media, there are some important questions that you should have answers to:
1- What are its ingredients
2- What is its potential water holding capacity
3- What is its potential air porosity
The growing media supports the plant from germination to the time of transplanting.
The growing media not only provides support for the plant but also must be a source of water, air and nutrients. The water and nutrients are absorbed from the media by the roots. In order for the media to best provide these essentials to the plant, the media quality must have certain characteristics.
