Gold Label 60/40 is a ready to go mix of 60% clay pebbles and 40% coco coir. Coco/ clay mixes are quickly becoming a favourite among growers due to the benefits it offers. Some people like growing in coir but find the aeration in the media isn’t as good as it could be. By mixing in clay pebbles, air content in the substrate gets a significant boost, giving roots a better environment. Not only this, Gold Label 60/40 offers better drainage, further preventing issues of water logging. Many say that these mixes offer the best of both worlds and are the ideal growing medium.
Gold Label 60/40 is an inert substrate with no nutrients in it at all. This means you are completely in charge of feeding the plants right from the off and can finely tune the feeding regime. Gold label recommend using a coco base nutrient from the first watering for best results. 60/40 is an ideal media to use in a flood and drain system, but it is also fine for hand watering. You will need to water less than if you were growing purely in clay pebbles alone.
All Gold Label substrates are RHP certified and Gold Label are the only substrate manufacturer with a KIWA certification. Gold Label manufacture effective and high-quality substrates, if you’re looking for a medium you can trust, look no further!
