Due to the method of manufacture, coir is a completely sterile substrate. Therefore, it is important to ensure your substrate provides the right nutrients for plants and clean up crew, whilst including the beneficial microbiology for a working Bioactive System. Therefore, we highly recommend buying the Ultimate Boost, the perfect way to meet all these needs, in a safe manner.
