ULTRA CLEAN MICROGREENS
VegBed is the world's first and only growing substrate made entirely of sustainable bamboo fibers. Growing soilless/hydroponically will save you a lot of time in preparation, seeding, harvesting, and cleaning.
The mat/roll can also biodegrade in a matter of months, depending on your compost/soil system. Grow a whole tray of luscious microgreens in just 10 days with some seed varieties!
Each roll is 0.5m x 30.5m in size, allowing you to cut to your specifications. The roll is easily cut into smaller sheets to the size you require. Using a paper guillotine cutter is ideal.
We can supply every mixture on the basis of potting soil formulas that we develop together with you, growers. By doing so, we respond to your specific situation as a grower.
A grower wants to grow the most beautiful and best plant. That means uniformity, good colour, a strong plant that is stable in the pot, sufficient buffer in the pot for the sales channel and much more.
Potting soil or substrates are frequently a blend of organic and inorganic components.
This includes various types of peat, peat that is milled or peat from peat or blocks. However, there are also other organic components (read: additives) such as Perlite ('popped' volcanic rock), Pumice stone, clay granules, vermiculite, sand, compost, clay, coconut and coconut fibre, wood fiber and pieces of tree bark (pine). Each component has its own characteristic pH and EC value as well as air content* and water content*².
We are mainly talking about stone wool products.
Each component has its own set of physical and chemical characteristics. In this way, we can determine the total properties of a potting soil composition, which can influence the growth and development of a plan. By adding clay, for example, the water is fixed, and the plant must expend more energy to separate the water from the clay complex. As a result, the growth is compact.
Of course, a number of basic fertilizers should be added to the potting soil mix at the start of the cultivation. This can be determined through careful consultation. The pH and EC are determined based on the crop, and a starting fertilizer (NPK) and amount of lime are added in accordance with advice.
