plagron lightmix


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.

    Frequently asked questions about Lightmix
    Yes, but it is better not to. The fibres in Lightmix can restrict the growth of the seedlings and the nutrients in Lightmix will delay root growth. The airy structure also means that the contact between the seeds and the moist soil is not as good. This prevents the seeds from absorbing the moisture they need to start germination. Our Seeding & Cutting Soil avoids these problems and boosts the germination rate and speed, resulting in more uniform plants.
    Planting 1-2 week old seedlings in Lightmix will cause no problems.
    Yes. However, the best choice is Promix.
    Yes, this is possible. But the mixtures are actually too airy to ensure a good start for the plants.
    Yes, Lightmix has been formulated to grow using mineral nutrition. This means that the pH value affects how well the nutrition is absorbed.
