Eden Horticulture are the official distributors of Plagron soil and nutrients! We had a chat with Plagron about their range and why their products are the perfect choice for you.
Q) For customers new to your products, what is the difference between grow style and category?
Each grow style has its own characteristic. Our growing styles consist of different substrates and basic nutrients, each with their own advantages.
Do you prefer a healthy end product with the best smell and taste? If so then choose Plagron 100% NATURAL products. All 100% NATURAL substrates and fertilisers are 100% organic and therefore good for people, animals and the environment. 100% NATURAL products can be recognised by the green label.
Do you like, fast, easy and good results? If so, then choose Plagron 100% TERRA products. 100% TERRA substrates and fertilisers offer great flexibility so you can grow whatever you want. 100% TERRA products can be recognised by the red label.
Do you prefer coco-based hydroponics? If so then choose Plagron 100% COCO products. 100% COCO substrates and fertilisers are simple and easy to use and offer a stable pH value. 100% COCO products can be recognised by the orange label.
Do you prefer hydroponics and total control? If so then choose Plagron 100% HYDRO products. 100% HYDRO substrates and fertilisers offer total control for nutrition values and pH values. 100% HYDRO products can be recognised by the blue label.
Q) Tell us more about your product selector?
With our product selector, you can choose your desired substrate. By answering the questions you will arrive at the substrate that meets your wishes. Among other things, considerations are made between taste, yield, and experience of the grower, so that you get to the right products for an ideal growing situation.

Q) At what stage should people start giving nutrition if they use Lightmix?
After the first week, the grower can fertilise his plant with half a dose of Terra Grow. Then gradually build up the nutrition according to the needs of the plant.
Q) Is your 100% COCO organic?
Our Cocos Premium has the RHP quality mark. Cocos Premium can be considered as an organic substrate, but due to the presence of calcium, the substrate cannot be registered as an organic substrate with the CU logo.
Q) Can people grow using 100% HYDRO without adjusting the pH and EC meter?
We advise every grower who uses our 100% HYDRO products to adjust the pH and EC according to our growing schedule. The pH must be within a certain range to guarantee maximum absorption. It is possible to grow with our 100% HYDRO products without an EC meter if the grower can ‘read’ his plants well and following the schedule. However, it is not advisable, an EC meter makes it much easier.
Q) Should people purchase moisture meters for any of the range?
The use of a moisture meter gives a clear picture of how moist the substrate is. This meter is a great tool for beginners who tend to keep the substrate too moist. An experienced grower can put a finger in the substrate and feel whether the substrate is damp or dry enough.
Q) Tell us more about Plagron's Grow Schedule Calculator?
Our Grow Schedule Calculator is made to make feeding the plants a lot easier. Many starting growers are uncertain to what extent they should feed. Our Grow Schedule Calculator is a great guideline, which can usually be used without any problems and therefore gives certainty to the grower. The Grow Schedule Calculator also shows which products can be combined as well.
