RGPRO HORTI 2: Directions for Use

The granular product can be applied either as an additive, evenly blended within the potting media, or for potting on liners/young plants as a layer in the container directly under the roots.

Blended with potting mixes – Trays & Liners

Mix the granules evenly with the potting media at 1:100 ratio (10kg of HORTI 2 per 1000L of media).

Layer application – Potting on stage

Part fill new container, sprinkle the granular product evenly as a layer at the recommended dosage rate (see table below). Place the plug or transplant directly onto the granules ensuring the roots are in contact and continue to backfill.

The amount required should be enough to cover the base of the roots of the plant being potted on. The table below represents a guideline for application. The number of plants treated from 10kg is approximate.
