Growstone GS-1 Hydro Stones is the perfect growing media for vegetables, herbs, fruit and flowering plants – from lettuce and basil, to tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, gerbera daisies and orchids.
It can be used in hydroponic systems as simple as manually irrigated containers, or as advanced as automatically drip irrigated containers, Ebb-Flow systems, and NFT tables.
An Engineered Substrate For Consistent Results Growstones aggregates are engineered to provide an effective ratio between aeration and moisture to any hydroponic system.
While other substrates maximize either air or moisture, Growstones are designed to allow for both moisture absorption and drainage.
Most important in any growing medium is the air in the medium after drainage.
Plant roots require air (particularly oxygen) for growth process respiration.
Growstones aggregates make for an ideal hydroponic substrate due to its small and large pores.
When the substrate is irrigated, water is held in the micro pores but quickly drains through the macro pores, allowing fresh air to flow through the substrate, which brings oxygen to the roots and removes carbon dioxide from the root zone
Growstones Hydroponic Medium Give You:
Highly effective balance between air and water content at field capacity, meaning high air-filled porosity coexist with high water holding capacity
Growstones hold 3 times more water and 12% more air than Hydroton. Easy control of root zone moisture content – high steer-ability
Easy drainage and re-wetting after being completely dehydrated
Silica release in a form plants can uptake
Highly flexibility for different plant needs for consistent high yield
