Nutrifield COCO Perlite Blend 50L
This is a Blend of 30% Perlite Media and 70% Coco media.
- Customers report that The new Ugro max air product is fluffier, holds water better and is producing a visibly better plant.
- However UGRO is more expensive - Consider spending more should pay for itself
- Some suggestions that Nutrifield is a cheap brand - so that is fine.
- Another option to save money we would suggest buying the perlite and COCO seperately and mixing in each pot. This is a better alternative than using a pre-mix on the price alone.
The idea is to consistently blend even amounts of Perlite into the Coco to improve drainage when too wet, and water holding when too dry. Basically meaning that Perlite is a very good media while Coco can get too wet or Hydrophobic meaning once it dries out too much it can repel water.
Usually I would recommend doing your own mixing if needed. Here is the problem. If a pot has a little more perlite than another which has a lot less and you water them the same there will be a difference. It may lead you to increase watering which improves one and makes the other too wet. If you decreased watering on one it could dry another out too much. So blending media has its issues - you need to be careful.
I also suggest there is a problem adding media to Coco. Many growers do so to make their waste media look like mulch or soil. Adding bits of white perlite does eliminate that advantage of Coco.
