Mixed into a substrate, SOCO® polymer provides a reduction in water stress. It ensures that cuttings and transplants take root better and that seedlings grow faster. Irrigation frequencies are spread out. It is an ideal solution in substrates for containers, hanging plants, and houseplants.
Watering frequencies are commonly reduced by 30% to 50%, which likewise reduces labor costs and the amount of water used.
Evenly mix SOCO® Polymer into the substrate. The amount must be adapted to each type of substrate based on water requirements and characteristics of the plants and cultivation and weather conditions. As a general rule, the more permeable the substrate, the greater the need for SOCO® Polymer .
In permeable substrates made of bark, wood fiber or coconut-residue, the recommended amount is 2 - 3 kg/m³.
In less permeable substrates, such as peat or composts, the recommended amount ranges from 1 to 2 kg/m3.
