Although Mapito a little longer exists, growers seem especially in recent years to discover. This is no coincidence, because Mapito is as solid substrate structure and has an optimal ratio of water and oxygen. This forms the basis for a very good harvest! Mapito consists of rockwool and coconut fiber. Mapito itself contains too little food, but water and liquid food is stored therein.
Coils, EC and pH value
Before we can use Mapito we need first to rinse, so as to reduce the EC. Earth clean Another important point when growing on Mapito is that we should keep an eye on., The pH of the substrate well For the successful growing on Mapito it is best if we have a pH-value in the substrate holding between the 5.3 and 5.8. Since normal tap would have of 7.5, a pH-value, for example, this means that we have to look down to bring. The pH-value of the tap water By using pH-min, and the correct dosage to be applied, we can get. The pH-value to the ideal value see Regularly measure and monitor is hereby recommended. Often there is to be found on the pH of the water in your area. Much information on the Internet
At the start of culturing on Mapito it as well when growing on rockwool important that we allow to soak. Mapito the If you do not do or do wrong, it is likely that the long Mapito will not work so well and significantly less will absorb moisture and the plants can emit. All stone wool substrates (including Mapito) serve for the start of the breeding to be soaked. This is done in order to ensure that the ability of the Mapito to hold water to be increased. This is called “capillary action”. Mapito that has not been previously soaked keeps the water sufficiently firm and also gives the plants or insufficient, the ability to record from it. Fluids and nutrition Often you see such problems for growers strikingly cuttings have not take. It is not wrong or soaking the Mapito here is often the main culprit. The young, often vulnerable sites will not keep it long. This is also the reason why rockwool slabs are often provided with a layer of plastic (white cover). In regular horticulture operates this plastic cover as propagator. Moreover, thanks to the plastic cover, the mats can be easily completely soaked. If Mapito or rockwool is not soaked, before the start of the breeding places remained dry during cultivation will not be wet. The Mapito can not retain optimal moisture. For optimum soaking, you may Mapito best 24 keep wet. In this way the basis for a good harvest already laid!
When the flower pots or seed trays fills in for the first time with Mapito flakes, make sure that you fill the pots or seed trays up. Because there because in doing so, as many flakes will prevent the substrate collapses too, after the flakes become moist. First Due to the water, the flakes are of course heavier and become a part of the air is pressed from it. This may be a substrate of Mapito shrink considerably. By applying a sufficiently thick layer to the substrate after the collapse will be thick enough to make decent plants to continue to grow. If the layer Mapito still collapse too, bring back additional flakes, so the pot is optimally filled.
