Fertiss Growing Medium from Oasis Grower Solutions
Made from a special blend of long-fiber sphagnum peat moss, perlite and vermiculite bound by a non-woven cellulose fabric, Fertiss propagation plugs are loose-rolled for increased air porosity, better moisture management and easier sticking. Special tray designs promote uniform air pruning, reduce root spiraling and encourage healthy starter plants that establish faster after transplanting, so transplant shock and costly plant loss are minimized.
