Lack of oxygen in the root zone has a direct influence on root development. Besides the uptake of nutrients and water. Because of the open cell structure, Hydrocell flakes help ensure that there’s always a good oxygen content throughout the pot. Also if the substrate becomes saturated.

Resulting in more feeder roots, improved water- and nutrient uptake. Consequently more vigorous plants.

Hydrocell®, when used in flake form as an additive in potting soils and composts, produces an ideal growing environment for roots. The result is stronger, more vigorous plants which can, potentially, be brought to market earlier.

That’s why we advise tree planting with Hydrocell.
