Growstone Super Soil Aerator

Good soil mixes are typically well drained and aerated, meaning that the air inside the soil is similar to atmospheric air. This is essential for healthy root growth and healthy crops.

Growstone Super Soil Aerator is the ideal aeration component of soil mixes. Its highly porous aggregates act as air pockets' significantly enhancing aeration and drainage of any sphagnum peat, coco coir or composted soil based mix. As a result it creates the ideal environment for your plants' root systems and leads to healthy, thriving plants.

Ideal for growing a wide variety of plants including herbs, flowering and woody ornamentals, vegetables, tropicals, trees and shrubs, Growstones Super Soil Aerator is a sustainable engineered alternative to perlite and other soil amendments used to improve texture and structure of soil or soilless mixes.

Growstones Super Soil Aerator Give You:
  • Highly effective balance between air and water content at field capacity.
  • Significantly higher aeration than perlite. At field capacity, Growstones aggregates have 47% more air-filled pore spaces inside its small pores than horticultural perlite.
  • Enhanced aeration and drainage of soil mixes.
  • Consistent plant development and yields.
  • Consistent physical integrity over time after multiple usages.
  • High flexibility for different plant needs in a wide variety of climates.
  • No weed seeds or disease spores.
  • Guarantee it does not float to the top of mixes and wash away when irrigated.

Recycled Product

Growstones are manufactured using up to 98% waste materials, replacing strip-mined materials like pumice and perlite, reducing environmental degradation. At the same time, since the product largely consists of recycled glass bottles, a large amount of waste is given a new life, keeping it from the landfill.

Getting Started

Nothing is more important to successful growing than soil properties. Its condition and health can determine the condition of your plants. Growstones Super Soil Aerator helps soil breath making it less dense, less clumpy and more workable.

How To Prepare Your Growstones Planting Mix

For first time use for soil mixes, the "Soak Poke & Drain" method described below is recommended. It is simple, easy and mess-free.

  1. While Growstones are still in its plastic lined bag, open a hole at the top of the bag.
  2. Fit a water hose, and fill the bag with tap water. Let soak upright for an hour.
  3. Poke small holes at the bottom of the bag and let the water drain away.
  4. Rinse and drain once more to eliminate any dust remaining inside the bag.
  5. Mix one part Growstones with 2 to 4 parts of sphagnum peat moss, coco coir, or composted soil.
  6. Place the Growstone planting mix in your growing container or bed.
  7. Transplant by carefully placing the roots of your seedling/plug in a hole large enough to contain them. Cover seedling roots with Growstone planting mix.
  8. Press gently with your hands to create good contact between the roots and their new environment.
  9. Water immediately after planting.
  10. Water again each time mix feels dry to tough about one inch below the surface.

Customize Your Planting Mix
For increased drainage, use more Growstones and for increased water retention, use more sphagnum peat moss or coco coir when creating your Growstones planting mix.
