Leafy Pot Plants

Revival in demand for diverse growing media in leafy pot plants production

Leafy plants are seeing a real revival. But consumers want them in a greater variety of sizes than ever – from tiny pots to oversized containers. Different growing media have different advantages, on which we offer personal support and tailored solutions.

Substrates must have a range of qualities

The substrate you use has to offer the right structure for fixing stems, sticking cuttings, transplanting into drilled planting holes, and repotting. Most of these crops need a well-drained, porous substrate which stays fertile and stable for long cultivation cycles. And, of course, it should maintain these qualities once the plant is sold to the final consumer.
