Nutrients and medicinal cannabis

Medicinal cannabis usually has a fairly short production cycle. This means growers are able to go through 3-4 production cycles a year with smaller plants or do one annual cycle with larger plants.

What’s special about our Wood Fibre

BVB Wood FIbre is a special raw material that has many advantages for cultivation. In this article you can read which properties the material adds to our substrates.

BVB Wood Fibre for substrates: how it’s made

Over the past decades the need for complementary materials in substrates had risen. We’ve talked about one of the materials we use before; BVB Accretio which is made of sphagnum moss. Next to BVB Accretio we also process a specific type of Wood Fibre called BVB Wood Fibre into our substrates. This article focusses on the great properties this material brings to our substrates.
