Pattern of perfect healthy root growth in Fytocell - hydroponics

Fytocell®, a perfect growing media for both propagation and growing of salad crops (vegetable growing-tomato-sweet pepper, cucumber, eggplant), flowers, and various soft fruit grown (strawberries a.o.) in soil less culture – hydroponics, hanging baskets , green walls and potting soil mixtures.

Fytocell® enables an even wetness from top to bottom of a plant grow bag, meaning growers can irrigate accurately without expensive run-off. Fytocell® is made of an easily wetted cellular material, ensuring very even levels of wetness, conductivity and pH throughout the whole bag root zone. It is pleasantly soft and light to handle, and plants root into the foam very easily. It can also save on fertiliser costs, as using it ensures fertilisers are not washed away through excessive watering.

Lack of oxygen in the root zone has a direct influence on root development and, subsequently, the uptake of nutrients and water. Because of the open cell structure, Fytocell® flakes help ensure that there is always good oxygen content throughout the pot – even if the substrate becomes saturated.

The result is more feeder roots, improved water and nutrient uptake and stronger, more vigorous plants.

Safe Water a.o - Environmental aspects by Fytocell®

Growers are becoming steadily aware of the need to save on water usage, as new legislation has come into force and water costs are being pushed up. Fresh produce growers no longer have the luxury of wasting water.
