What is stone wool?
Stone wool is made from basalt (rock) that is heated to 3,000°F and spun like cotton candy into long fibers (wool). The fact that it’s sustainable for the environment is an added bonus.
What are the benefits of stone wool?
- Lightweight, pathogen-free, disease-free, seed-free
- Even, rapid water distribution throughout the media
- The most uniform growing substrate which results in consistent plant growth
- Inert, meaning it will not add or hold back any nutrients or water from the plant
- Usable in recirculating systems from first drain, reducing water and fertilizer usage
- Very controllable so grower is able to steer plant growth.
- Excellent buffer and re-saturation capability
