WHAT IS ROCKWOOL?

Rockwool is a wool-like material made by melting balsatic- rock and spinning it into fine fibers. It is used in gardening, mainly for seed germination and as hydroponics growing media.

ADVANTAGES OF USING ROCKWOOL

  • It contains no harmful chemicals.
  • It is sterile
  • It drains excess water quickly
  • It retains moisture at the bottom
  • It promotes air circulation at the roots

ENVIRONMENT-FRIENDLY TIP:   Rockwool does not degrade easily, so do not throw it away after use.  It is advised that you re-use rockwool as a soil additive by separating it into small strips and mixing it with soil or potting media to improve the texture of your soil.

HOW TO USE ROCKWOOL IN SEED STARTING

  1. Soak rockwool cubes in water, or until no more bubbles arise from it. Option to add a few drops of lemon juice in the water solution to lower pH level because rockwool is known to be more alkaline.
  2. Add 2-3 seeds in the hole.
  3. Water the hole every 2- 3 days.
  4. When the seedling is at least 2-3 inches, gently remove the weaker seedling and retain only 1 seedling.
  5. Transplant directly into the soil without removing the rockwool.

CAUTION:    If you have allergies to dusts and similar particles, use protective garden gloves when handling rockwool.  Do not inhale because it may contain small particles that might get into your lungs or eyes.  Wash your hands thoroughly after using it.
