Hydro grains are made of pure and salt-free baked clay. They contain a very low concentration of elements. The quality of hydro grains is largely determined by the Ph. In addition the concentrations of Sodium and Manganese are important. Hydro grains are used for various growing methods, sometimes they are placed at the bottom of the flowerpot when growing on a substrate like soil. It is used as an additional drainage, so drainage and the supply of oxygen from below are more effective. Sometimes hydro grains are mixed in the substrate, to make the growing medium airier. The roots can also branch off better. As a result of the use of hydro grains the chance of fungi, mildew, and other plant diseases becomes minimal.
Ground cover, like bark, cocoa shells and Color Wood, is used to protect shrubs and trees. A ground cover prevents pathogens from reaching the roots of the plants and protects agains heat, cold and loss of water. It also makes gardening a lot easier and reduces the amount of maintenance needed, because it keeps the growth of weeds to a minimum. In addition to these practical benefits, it also has a nice, well-kept appearance.
