With the change of the seasons, many gardeners shift their focus to indoor growing … bringing nature inside and providing their homes with beautiful plants that offer color, improved air quality, and stress reduction, and that promote overall wellness. Gardeners and indoor plant enthusiasts know the best plants are grown in the best potting mix or soil. Strong, healthy plant growth appears when plant roots develop in an ideal environment; one that provides just the right balance between, air, water, nutrients, and microbiota. PittMoss®, the innovative soilless growing media does all that and more.
The main component in PittMoss is recycled newspapers. Yes, that’s correct, newspapers. Researchers discovered that the “ligno-cellulose fibers” (LCF) found in newspapers when properly processed or broken down make an ideal substrate for growing plants. And there’s a bonus as well. Newspapers, a huge waste stream that comprises approximately 34% of landfill waste, are redirected and turned into an all organic, useful resource used in gardens, greenhouses, and nurseries.
The ligno-cellulose fibers in PittMoss are unique and provide plant roots with an ideal environment for strong, healthy growth. The media’s hydrophilic properties allow adequate drainage, yet hold ample air and water, and has the perfect balance of physical, chemical, and biological properties for plant growth.
“Plants depend on a good foundation”, said renowned soil scientist Dr. Charles Bethke. “PittMoss is a much more eco-conscious choice that gives plants the resiliency they need to thrive.”
