BVB Substrates offer three different types of specialised substrates for the creation of press pots for propagation (also known as blocking substrate or press blocks) within its GRANDIO portfolio.
Each of these standardised products focuses on different use cases while offering the best properties a blocking substrate should have to create excellent press pots for propagation and young plants.
Main properties of press pots for propagation
The main things that a high-quality substrate for press pots for propagation needs to offer are good cohesion and structural strength, as well as optimal hydrodynamics. By providing an adequate water buffer, reliable water uptake, and an even water distribution throughout the pres spots, you make sure the roots of your plants can develop well.
In addition, it’s quite important that blocking substrates can be used for automatic planting systems, as this is a common need when creating press pots for propagation and young plants.
