Flowering pot plants have specific requirements for mixtures. We at BVB Substrates know the needs of each crop. In addition, growers have their own cultivation strategies. The mixture must suit this strategy. It is important that the roots have a sufficiently airy substrate, and the flowering phase has been taken into account. Moisture management for the crop can become more critical during that phase especially e.g. for poinsettia. Proper fertilization from the start for a stocky plant e.g. Kalanchoe, Pot Chrysanthemum and Pot Carnation is important for growth.
Fast growth, solid quality and a beautiful plant structure, that’s how growers prefer to see their plants. BVB Substrates supplies you with the best substrate to achieve this. With easily available water, airiness and long-term stability, your green plants get everything they need. The type of crop and the cultivation system used determine the exact needs of the plants, and thus the optimal mixture of raw materials for the substrate.
We test the composition of substrates based on:
After we determine what substrate would be best and a grower takes it in to use, we stay close to advice the grower during the cultivation to get the best out of the mixture for the crop. By keeping track of the way a grower pots his plant, for example, we can see if it is necessary to adjust a mixture to make it even more efficient in terms of price / performance.
If desired, we can also assist by thinking about the fertilisation. BVB Reasearch is our own laboratory for conducting a 1: 1.5 analysis and a physical analysis of the substrate.
