Sustraberry Blueberry Excellence is a substrate with a coarse structure based on the mixture of selected blonde peat with a proportion of SOD peat, with coir fiber with a special structure, coarse and with short fibers, and perlite. Thanks to its high proportion of coir, it is a long lasting substrate, since the cco peat degrades less than peat, providing physical stability. In addition, the coir fiber avoids compaction and, therefore, facilitates proper drainage. The proportion of blonde peat included provides nutrients to the growing media to aid in the proper establishment of roots. The perlite also contributes to the durability and provides the growth medium with the necessary aeration.
This substrate is, therefore, perfect for plants such as the blueberry plant, which requires an acidic pH soil level. The optimum range is between 4’5 and 5’5 (following the Saturated Soil Paste Analysis).
