Husk chips of various sizes are used in many of FibreDust’s custom growing blends. They are increasingly important in high tech hydroponic greenhouses with growers who must irrigate with nutrient solution several times per day to deliver hydroponic nutrients and oxygen to roots.
These 5kg blocks of chips are available in several chip sizes and are 100% husk chips. Often, growers will blend chips with “pith” the smaller particle known as coco peat. This increases the both drainage and oxygen levels. Popular blends include 50/50 Peat to chips and fiber, a great choice for high tech tomatoes. 30/70 peat to coir is often used for berries and Cucumbers. 70/30 pith to chips and fiber is great for lower tech growing as it has heavy water holding capacity but still excellent drainage.
