Mapito Grow Medium

Have you heard of the Mapito grow medium? This European based grow medium has come to America and its been the best kept secret amongst the hydroponics growing community. Mapito is a special mixture of rockwool and PU flakes which provides excellent moisture hold and proper drainage. It has the same absorption qualities of rockwool. The drainage part is handled by the pu flakes. The Mapito grow medium is also compaction resistant. This assures good root growth which will lead to larger plants.

What is PU? PU are polyurethane flakes. This material is similar to foam but designed for the hydroponics, gardening, and horticulture industry. PU adds structure to Mapito. It provides for a lighter medium which leads to increased oxygen absorption.

Mapito is a raving success in Europe and now is growing massively popular in the US. Here's why:

  1. Mapito has excellent benefits as compared to conventional media.

  2. Very inert and therefore won't attract unfriendly organisms such as bugs.

  3. Holds an incredible amount of water and retains it.

  4. Holds a lot of air even when saturated.

  5. Mapito is clean, conventional, and re-usable.

  6. Never impedes the development of roots.

One of the benefits of Mapito Grow Medium is reuse.  Reuse not only saves the environment, but also cuts down on time and labor.  A number of growing mediums cannot be reused, such as rockwool cubes.  It is nearly impossible to remove tangled roots from a rockwool cube and if you do, you probably won’t have a cube left.  Other mediums like soils can contain harmful pathogens, insect eggs, etc.  Some commercial greenhouses do recycle soil, but only after it has been steam pasteurized using expensive equipment – which is not available to the hobby gardener.

The process for resusing Mapito is simple. Remove all the dead leaves and root balls. Flush the medium with lots of water to remove any residual nutrients.  Then use an enzyme product such as Sensizym, Hygrozyme, or Cannazym.  These enzyme products break down the organic matter that has been left behind.  Follow the dosage and water 2 times about 2-3 days apart. Not only will these enzymes break down the left over root and organic matter, but they will turn them into nutrients for your next cycle, giving you head start!

We recommend a pH balance of around 5.5 before using when using Mapito for optimal results. Simply us the pH up or pH down product to make this happen.

You will get 1.5 cubic feet worth of Mapito with each order. Shipping is $14 for each bag ordered.
