5 reasons to choose Poinsettia substrates from Lentse & Slingerland Potgrond

The selection of a good substrate is crucial at the start of the Poinsettia season. Here is a list of the most important factors to remember from Lentse & Slingerland Potgrond.

  1. Good aeration; your substrate should have a stable structure which promotes good aeration. This is vital for a sound development of the delicate root system.
  2. Adequate stability; it is essential that you now choose a stable substrate to make sure that your Poinsettias will sit firmly in their pots. This is guaranteed by our basic material Growcorn.
  3. Outstanding water absorption capacity; it is important to use a substrate that can absorb water quickly to maintain a good distribution of moisture throughout the pot.
  4. Quickly drying top layer; using a Poinsettia substrate with a quick-drying top layer is essential to help prevent diseases. Lentse & Slingerland Potgrond has the right raw materials to incorporate these characteristics into the substrate.
  5. Stable pH; Poinsettia plants are pH-sensitive. The selection of raw materials and a correct dosing of lime and fertilisers are therefore of paramount importance. In addition, our high-tech production lines ensure a homogeneous product.

Peat-free Poinsettia substrate
In addition to peat-based substrates for Poinsettia, Lentse & Slingerland Potgrond has had good experiences with reduced-peat and peat-free Poinsettia substrates.
