Plagron Lightmix is a mix of the very best, carefully selected types of peat. The addition of various types of fibre and perlite results in a lightness and oxygen level found only in Plagron quality substrates. Only a minimal amount of nutrients have been added to Lightmix. This makes Lightmix the perfect substrate to fertilise according to your own judgement and choices.
Lightmix comes with enough fertiliser for 1 week. after this, you will need to begin using a suitable plant nutrient. Light Mix provides the highest yields in combination with Plagron Terra, Terra Bloom and the additives from Plagron. Lightmix: also available without perlite.
Plagron Lightmix is a substrate for direct use when you are planting and transplanting flowering plants. Start fertilising after the first week.
Conversions: 1 Teaspoon = 5mL | 1 Tablespoon = 15 mL | 1 Ounce = 30mL | 1 Cup = 240 mL
Plagron Light Mix is a lightly fertilised organic soil mixed with perlite and is ideal for use as a potting soil with young plants.
We also recommend using a light mix for all soil grows as the ability to add nutrients as required gives you more control over your growing environment.
Plagron is a mixture of various types of peat combined with other fibres to increase oxygen levels. There is also perlite – expanded volcanic glass – to aid water retention and prevent the soil compacting as much.
The nutrient content of the light mix has been kept to a minimum and to get the most from your plants you will need to use a soil nutrient such as Hesi or Plant Magic.
Plagron Lightmix FAQ’s
Q. Can I germinate seeds in Lightmix?
Yes, but it is better not to. The fibres in Lightmix can restrict the growth of the seedlings and the nutrients in Lightmix will delay root growth. The airy structure also means that the contact between the seeds and the moist soil is not as good. This prevents the seeds from absorbing the moisture they need to start germination. Our Seeding & Cutting Soil avoids these problems and boosts the germination rate and speed, resulting in more uniform plants.
Q. Can I plant seedlings directly into Lightmix or is it better to plant them into Seeding & Cutting Soil for a few days first? Will the germinating roots be damaged if the seedlings are planted straight in lightmix?
Q. Can I use Alga Grow and Alga Bloom if I use Lightmix?
Yes. However, the best choice is Promix.
Q. Can I use Lightmix and Promix to grow from seed or cuttings?
Yes, this is possible. But the mixtures are actually too airy to ensure a good start for the plants.
Q. Should I check and adjust the pH value if I use Lightmix?
Yes, Lightmix has been formulated to grow using mineral nutrition. This means that the pH value affects how well the nutrition is absorbed.
Q. When can I start giving nutrition if I use Lightmix?
Lightmix is already pre-fertilised for one week. Start giving nutrients after one week.
