An important decision:
The choice of growing medium (1).
The choice of substrate is at least equally as important
as the right fertiliser, in order to supply the plant with that it needs. Here, we differentiate between soil, soil-like substrates, and purely artificial substrates (e.g. Rockwool or expanded clay pebbles).
Soil substrates already contain basic nutrients, and also work as a buffer for any fertiliser applied. Nutrients not used by the plant are stored in the soil and can be used later.
This quality makes this growing medium a good choice,
especially for beginners and all those who want to minimise the amount of work relating to nutrient provision.
