High Density Professional Mix
High Density Professional Mix
Sandy loam soil is added to this pre-moistened horticultural sphagnum peat and perlite mixture to provide an air/water balance that assists in maintaining crop consistency and plant viability.
Composition:
· Pre-moistened sphagnum peat moss
· Coarse perlite
· Sandy loam soil
· Dolomitic limestone
· Balanced blend of major and minor elements
· Wetting agent
Features And Benefits:
· For anchorage and stability where a heavier base is needed
· Foliage crops
· Bedding crops
· Terrariums and interior plantscapes
· Long-term crops
· Outdoor growing
· Nutrient Buffering is high in this blend. Nutrients are less likely to leach out of the bottom of the pot with the high nutrient exchange capabilities of this mixture. Weekly liquid feeding is desirable in this blend, but avoid the build-up of soluble salts due to leaching.
· Pre-Moistened Sphagnum Peat provides easy watering and transplanting. Blending with the sandy loam increases the wettability of the mix.
· Air Porosity and Drainage are balanced in this mix. The built-in air porosity allows thorough watering without the problem of a perched water table and waterlogged roots. This formulation is designed for use with most crops. If you're familiar with the soil/peat mixtures, this is the mix for you.
· Water Holding is optimal in this blend. This mixture is neither too wet nor too dry after a thorough watering. Wetting agents help to provide ease in watering. Sub-irrigation works well with this medium.
· Heavier Weight is an advantage in stabilizing top-heavy plants. This medium provides long-term stability for pots and containers, as well as in bedding plant flats.
· Low Cost. Due to the location of our facilities and the ability to produce and obtain aggregates and additives in volume, we can supply the high quality planting blend at this low cost. Quality will not be sacrificed. Be sure to compare the cost per container and couple that with the degree of performance.

· Sprinkler irrigated crops
Composition:
· Pre-moistened sphagnum peat moss
· Coarse perlite
· Dolomitic limestone
· Balanced blend of major and minor elements
· Wetting agent
Features And Benefits:
· Nutrient and pH Buffering is optimized in this blend. Nutrients are less likely to leach out the bottom of the container with the high nutrient exchange capabilities. Weekly liquid feeding is desirable; however, due to the excellent nutrient buffering, this blend will require less feeding than most. Monitoring soluble salts is always recommended in any medium.
· Pre-Moistened Sphagnum Peat provides easy watering and transplanting. Wetting agents are added to provide rapid remoistening, especially if the medium gets excessively dry.
· Air Porosity and Drainage are balanced in the mix. This allows for thorough watering without the problem of a perched water table and waterlogged roots. Moisture is easy to manage in BACCTO High Porosity Professional Planting Mix. This formulation is designed for use in most crops.
· Water Holding is good in this blend. horticultural peat in combination with the added aggregates produces a blend that is neither too wet nor too dry after a thorough watering. You can water less frequently with this blend.
· Low Cost. Due to the location of our facilities and the ability to produce and obtain aggregates and additives in volume, we can supply the best possible planting blend at this low cost. Quality will not be sacrificed. Be sure to compare the cost per container and couple that with the degree of performance.
· Light Weight is an advantage of peat-lite blends when shipping the finished crop. It allows for easy handling of the pots and containers in the greenhouse.
· Easy Handling is one of the best characteristics of this blend. The light weight and fluffy texture make this material easy to handle and desirable to plant into. It is neither sticky nor granular, and will hold its texture throughout the life of the crop.
· Low Run Off of fertilizers and pesticides is a feature of this mix. It has a high Cation Exchange Capacity (C.E.C.) that holds the nutrients

Composition: · Aged screened pine bark · Pre-moistened sphagnum peat · Coarse perlite · Dolomitic limestone · Balanced blend of major and minor elements · Wetting agent

Features And Benefits:

· Nutrient and pH Buffering are a feature of this blend. Nutrients are less likely to leach out the bottom of the flat with the high nutrient exchange capabilities of our unique peat. Weekly liquid feeding is desirable; however, due to good nutrient buffering, this blend will require less feeding than many competing blends. Monitoring soluble salts is always recommended in any medium and should be done weekly to insure proper nutrition.
