Ecothrive Coco 70/30 Lite Mix - Pre-Mixed with Charge (1%) 50 Litres
Delivers Maximum Aeration Combined with a Dose of 'Charge' for Rapid Plant Development
This Lite Mix contains the winning combination of 70% Coco, 30% perlite and 1% Charge. It works especially well when used with young plants or freshly rooted cutting due to the lighter fertilisation of the medium. Ecothrive Lite Mix grown plants are stronger, healthier and more vigorous than standard coco grown specimens, and it's also much harder to over water them.

How Ecothrive 70/30 Coco Lite Mix Works:
Coco coir is an enormously popular growing medium - that's largely because it gives you so much control over plant nutrition. Coco specific nutrients are mineral based, so you can fine-tune the strength of your nutrients with pinpoint accuracy using an EC meter (which detects electrical conductivity levels). With this level of control, it becomes easier to make changes that will improve plant-health and yields. Ecothrive 70/30 Coco Lite Mix offers you these benefits whilst giving you superior aeration, thanks to the addition of 30% perlite.
Also included is a 1% mix of the extremely popular 'Charge' – a product that is both eco-friendly and all natural. Charge consists of insect frass (otherwise known as larvae excrement) and it delivers billions of beneficial microorganisms to the rootzone, boosting root health and overall plant health. It also contains a wondrous substance called chitin, which stimulates plants’ natural defence system, triggering rapid increases in development and a greater resistance to pests and diseases.
How to Use Ecothrive 70/30 Coco Lite Mix:
You can use Ecothrive 70/30 Coco Lite Mix direct out of the bag, there's no mixing required. Note that there is some nutrition already in Lite Mix. You can start feeding from day one if you're potting up larger plants, but it's better to start at a low strength and work your way up. We recommend a pH of around 5.8. Ecothrive 70/30 Coco Lite Mix contains a source of macro and micro nutrients, but it's slow release. When potting up you can add more Ecothrive Charge in the mix at a rate of 10ml per litre of Ecothrive 70/30 Coco Lite Mix used to provide a nutritional kick and ultimately, a bigger boost.
