Growing Media

Hydroponic growing typically produces larger plants faster than soil, but is more exacting and less forgiving. More oxygen is trapped in soilless or hydroponic growing media than soil, which aids in uptake of nutrients by root hairs. The mixes and media we offer in this section are for both soil and soilless growing. All are extremely popular and work very well for indoor gardening.
