Growing Media

When plants are grown in containers, (rather than the soil), a fundamental requirement for healthy growth is a growing medium or substrate that supports a healthy root system. Plant roots in a container have access to a much smaller volume of substrate than they would when grown in the soil therefore the air and water capacity of the medium used is much more critical. If you chose the right growing medium for the plant type and growing situation you are making a good start towards growing a healthy, happy plant. If you get it wrong it can be difficult to correct problems later!
