Using the product selector

Before you take your plants outside, you have already chosen whether you’ll be growing in pots or open soil. You’ll need to fill pots with a substrate: a peat based soil. Obviously this is not necessary in open soil. But you can improve the soil you want to plant in by mixing in a good substrate. If you want to use Plagron products for these things, you’ll have to choose a grow style. There are two grow style that use soil based substrates: 100% NATURAL and 100% TERRA. But how do you choose the correct products from these styles?

A little help with choices

Plagron has a handy Product Selector that can help you to choose the correct substrate. It will present you with several choices that you’ll have to answer.

For the best start

If you choose to add more phosphorus and iron in the last step, the Product Selector will advise you to choose Plagron's Batmix from the 100% NATURAL grow style. This is an airy substrate with a good water retention capacity. It contains bat guano and is prefertilised for six weeks, which means you won’t need additional nutrients for starters. Finally, you don’t need to worry about the pH value of the substrate or other values. The soil life will regulate these things for you.
