Growing profitably and fertilise at your own insight
Plagron Lightmix is a mix of the very best, carefully selected types of peat. The addition of various types of fibre and perlite results in a lightness and oxygen level found only in Plagron quality substrates. Only a minimal amount of nutrients have been added to Lightmix. This makes Lightmix the perfect substrate to fertilise according to your own judgement and choices. Lightmix produces the highest yields when used with Plagron Terra Grow, Terra Bloom and the additives from Plagron. Lightmix: also available without perlite.
Plagron Lightmix is a substrate for direct use when you are planting and transplanting flowering plants. Start fertilising after the first week.

Lightmix is mineral pre-fertilised for one week. This means that you can place your young plant directly into the Lightmix. You don't have to worry about your plant absorbing too much or too little nutrition. The fertilisers in the Lightmix can be directly absorbed by the roots; the soil life does not have to convert them first.
Because Lightmix is minimally pre-fertilised, you can fertilise as you see fit. Terra Grow and Terra Bloom are the ideal basic nutrients to provide your plant with sufficient and the right nutrients during growth and flowering. In addition, the various additives in our range, such as Green Sensation and Sugar Royal, give just that extra push for a better harvest and taste.
Lightmix contains a low EC value. The low concentration of nutrients ensures that new roots are not damaged, so that they can develop more quickly. The young plants experience less stress and can fully focus on growth.
If you choose for perlite, you choose for a higher airiness of your substrate. This is great for the drainage and helps the development of the roots.
