MANAROCHE

Light growing medium

Manaroche is a growing medium made from rock wool fibers, perlite and vermiculite.

It can replace soil, potting soil and all other substrates in soilless culture.

It has many advantageous characteristics that make it indispensable in the cultivation of light plantations and mass ornamentation.

FORMATS

Pot / tray : The manaroche can simply be placed in a pot or cultivation tray, by arranging the depth according to the type of culture.

Bag : Plastic packaging provided: all you have to do is plant the seedlings on the pre-defined holes in single or double staggered rows.

Canvas: On the same principle as bag culture, the canvas retains the mechanical structure of the Manaroche and allows greater flexibility, being able to be cut anywhere at a simple cost of cutting (including on the side, even in below in case of suspension). The canvas allows you not to worry about drainage holes, and allows optimal ventilation.

COMPARATIVE ADVANTAGES VERSUS OTHER GROWING SUBSTRATES

RETURNS AND SAVINGS

Reusable 90% after rinsing.

Guarantees a constant and optimal hygrometric level for the development of the plant. Allows water savings of around 60%, reduces the frequency of watering and makes rehydration particularly easy.

Avoids the suffocation of plants and promotes oxygen uptake.

Fixes nutrients and redistributes them constantly and almost completely (acts as a reservoir of food). Gain in resources and productivity.

Insulating power, allows both to maintain a constant and optimal temperature, to retain humidity uniformly and to promote the circulation of oxygen without capturing it (inert substrate).

Neutral pH, does not affect the balance of plants.

Completely sterile (no risk of infection by fungus, bacteria or insects) due to the substrate.

EASE OF USE

Wide areas of application, very high flexibility

Does not require any other additional soil improvement product (perlite, vermiculite), unlike other substrates (potting soil, rock wool, other wools)

Lighter than other substrates, easier handling

Ready to use instantly.

Mechanical stability, avoids settling due to watering and time.
