Plagron Lightmix 50L Plt-60

This peat moss and perlite blend is a recipe for fast, high yields. Lightmix’s airy texture encourages rapid flowering and prime root growth. 

Rapid rooting

Lightmix has a low EC value, falling between 0.7 and 1.1mS/cm. This means it won’t disrupt the development of the root network and growers will see a thriving, healthy rhizosphere. 

If EC becomes too high, roots can struggle to extract water from the substrate, even if it’s readily available. As well as dehydration, this can cause problems with transpiration and disrupt plants’ heat regulation.

Fortunately, this is no issue with Lightmix! It’s gentle on plants and lets them grow uninterrupted. 

Pre-fertilised for one week

Lightmix is mixed with a mineral nutrient blend for one week of pre-fertilised growth. It’s the perfect compromise for growers who like to do their own thing! 

This allows plants one week of stable introduction, and then the grower can use their own judgement and introduce their favourite products almost right away. 

The pre-fertilising mix (NPK 12 - 14 - 24) is rich in potassium for high immunity and starch and sugar production. 

How to use Plagron Lightmix?

Lightmix is a substrate for direct use when planting and transplanting flowering plants. It has enough fertiliser for one week of use - then growers can use the additives of their choice. 

This fertiliser will also need a mineral basic nutrient for optimal plant health. 

What to use with Plagron Lightmix?

Plagron products are formulated with each other in mind. Lightmix gives the highest yields with Plagron Terra Grow, Terra Bloom, and any Plagron additive designed for flowering. 

How is Plagron Lightmix different from Growmix?

Keen readers might see similarities to another Plagron 100% TERRA substrate, Growmix. Both are made with peat and perlite; however, Growmix is pre-fertilised for three weeks. 

Growmix also contains worm castings to increase nutrient availability in difficult soils. It’s a great alternative for growers who don’t want to think about fertilisation for the first few weeks. However, for those who want to use their own additives, Lightmix is the way to go.
