Fytocell soilless for greenhouses
Soilless growing with water retaining technology
Fytocell improves your soil and retains water
Fytocell is the new growing medium for enhanced performance and better crops.
Perfect Air / Water Ratio for Root Growth
Fytocell’s structure provides a near perfect air/water ratio at all times, encouraging the development of a mass of finely branched roots – enabling better uptake of water and essential nutrients. The result is stronger, healthier plants and improved yields.
Scientifically Proven – Air 37% by volume
Oxygen is as vital to healthy root development as water and nutrients. The open cell structure of Fytocell ensures good oxygen content throughout the entire depth of the slab or pot of flakes – even when Fytocell is saturated. Before Fytocell it was very easy to add water to a substrate – but far more difficult to add oxygen!
Easy Water Management
Fytocell is impossible to over-wet at a maximum 60% saturation. Even when the slab or flakes are saturated the structure of Fytocell ensures there is sufficient air for healthy root growth. Should Fytocell dry out for any reason, re-wetting is simple and trouble free.
• flood and drain • dripper irrigate • handwater • run to waste or recirculating systems
Start With A Clean Substrate
Minimise your risk. Fytocell is sterile. This gives your young plant the best start to life. Fytocell has a starting pH of between 5.5 – 7.0 so there is no need to adjust your pH – just add your nutrient solution.
100% Biodegradable and Compostable – Proven in Holland
Fytocell is an aminoplast foam. It is harmless to the environment and is 100% biodgradable and compostable, making disposal easier and maintaining the green image.
Easy to Use in Hydroponics
Lightweight and easy to handle – non prickly. Fytocell is impossible to overwater. Fytocell provides the plant with easy access to water, so in case of power failure there is a good water buffer. Fytocell has low cation exchange and flushes easily.
Can’t be Beaten — Great Capillary Action
Great capillary action of Fytocell means that water is drawn up to the top of the slab. In uneven surface conditions where either ponding or dryness can occur, Fytocell is still able to provide a balanced air / water ratio in both the slab and flake form.
Grower feedback to date indicates Fytocell provide a barrier to Scarid Fly invasion. Because Fytocell is non fibrous Scarid Fly have difficulty penetrating the Fytocell.
