When growing with HydroGarden’s GoGro system we recommend using Coco Coir or Soil substrates that have excellent aeration properties.
There are three premium products that we would recommend from the CANNA substrate range; Coco Pebble mix – a unique combination of Coco Professional Plus (60%) and Aqua Clay Pebbles (40%), Terra Professional Plus+ - a complex blend of peat and 5% coco bark, and Terra Professional – a mixture of white & black peat along with perlite.
CANNA Coco Pebble Mix is ideal for growing in the GoGro system because it gives plants the ideal rootzone, without the hassle of mixing Coco Professional Plus with Aqua Clay Pebbles yourself. The addition of the Aqua Clay Pebbles prevents anaerobic bacteria living in the rootzone; which can cause various growth issues, and restrict your plant from performing to its full potential.
Terra Professional Plus+ uses white peat to enable the soil to retain its volume so it doesn't shrink and therefore provides the root zone with more oxygen. If you are looking for a cost-effective alternative that has similar aeration and drainage properties to the Terra Professional Plus+, then we would advise using Terra Professional.
If you have any questions surrounding the Coco Pebble Mix then please contact our CANNA Brand Manager, Ollie Chater, on 07951 159 559.
