Coconut husk peat
Coco peat is a proven natural alternative to mined peat moss. Using it helps slow down peat extraction from environmentally sensitive swamps worldwide. Coco coir peat will last three times as long as peat moss and sphagnum peat moss. Unlike peat moss, coco coir is hydrophilic and will re-wet easily without using wetting agents. It can hold up to 8 times its own weight in water. Used as a growing medium/potting medium, coco coir outperforms most of the popular brands of peat and sphagnum peat. Coco coir peat promotes healthy root growth in plants. This eco-friendly alternative to peat moss is derived from the husk of the coconut. Coco coir is an excellent growing medium for both commercial and home gardening applications. The hydroponics and horticulture industries have observed that plants grown with the aid of coir develop larger roots, stems and blooms. This is because unlike ordinary soil, which is usually compacted, coco peat provides more breathing space and aeration for plant roots, resulting in better growth.
Paonia silt with aquatic vegetation
Settled, eroded, native top soil plus fairy moss (azolla) is an excellent source of trace minerals, a touch of sand and real Paonia soil. Although it’s only a small percentage, this real Colorado soil makes a huge difference. In addition to the trace mineral boost, this soil adjusts the over all mineral mixture much closer to what your plants will find in the outdoors if you transplant into the field or garden. This reduces transplant shock, increases yield, and shortens growing time. This addition also adds a “real soil” feel unlike many potting mixes that are mostly peat or composted bark.
Heat expanded volcanic rock is the world’s premier organic aeration and drainage agent. Our perlite is made in Colorado. See more about the advantages of perlite here.
High nitrogen, Biodynamic compost, fully composted at over 140F and then cured. This adds life, structure and energy including starting nutrients for up to a month with no feeding required, but is light enough to allow mycorrhizal growth along with the other organisms cultivated through the Biodynamic compost process. The result is one of the first true Biodynamic potting mixes available.
Yet one more way we build beneficial aerobic organisims. Compost tea creates its own living food web of beneficial organisims and light nutrients.
12 strains of symbiotic root organisms that increases uptake of nutrients and water.
Beneficial Bacteria Inoculant
13 strains of beneficial bacteria break down nutrients and crowd out pathogens.
A natural trace mineral source, AZOMITE® is unique highly mineralized ore that is a complex silica (Hydrated Sodium Calcium Aluminosilicate or HSCAS) mined in Utah from a deposit left by an ancient volcanic eruption that was ejected out of the side of a mountain. The volcanic ash filled a small nearby sea bed. The combination of seawater, fed by hundreds of rivers rich in minerals, and the rare and abundant minerals present in volcanic ash created the AZOMITE®deposit which is found nowhere else on Earth. The deposit is very old, perhaps as much as 30 million years. Today, the geologic characteristic is an outcropping known as a hogback.
Makes nutrients more absorbable. Essentially highly concentrated ancient organic matter. Humic acid is a principal component of humic substances, which are the major organic constituents of soil (humus), peat, coal, many upland streams, dystrophic lakes, and ocean water. It is produced by biodegradation of dead organic matter. It is not a single acid; rather, it is a complex mixture of many different acids containing carboxyl and phenolate groups so that the mixture behaves functionally as a dibasic acid or, occasionally, as a tribasic acid.
There is just too much good to say about worm castings, so here’s a link:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vermicompost#Benefits
Kelp meal is a very high quality organic fertilizer. With an N-P-K ratio of approximately 1-0-2, it is a good source of nitrogen and potassium. It also contains minerals, amino acids, and trace amounts of other micronutrients. Kelp meal is seaweed, specifically Ascophyllus nodosum, and is harvested from the ocean. We primarily add it for it’s root stimulant and as a tonic for transplant shock.
