Which substrate slab is suitable for my cultivation?

It is important to know which type of cultivation you are planning in order to choose the proper substrate mat. Various substrates are available on the basis of these components. Each vegetation has its own needs and demands. Therefore one type of substrate mat does not fit all cultivation. It’s either a substrate that supports rapid root development of a plant or one that is fully controllable. There are also few substrates that can be used for multiple years. Royal Brinkman has a large selection of substrates.
