LITE-STRIPS Bio1 Cellulose

The water reservoirs for plants close to the roots

LITE-STRIPS Bio1 are 100 % biodegradable, 7 cm long strips of nonwoven that are simply mixed into the substrate. Up to 90% of the nonwoven volume can be filled with water and thus help plants through longer dry periods. 1 kg LITE-STRIPS Bio1 store up to 10 l of plant-available water.

 

ADVANTAGES:

    • Water only half as often
    • Stores water directly at the roots
    • Substrate improvement
    • Sustainable greening
    • Simple and easy installation
    • Loosened and better aerated soil
    • Ideal substitute for peat
    • Low weight
    • Optimal supply of plants with water & air

Since water storage for plants is located directly near the roots, plants can access the water more easily and effectively when needed, extending watering intervals. The elongated Lite-Strips draw water from the surface to the roots, make dense soil more permeable and function as a substrate improver.

The LITE-STRIPS Bio1 are made of cellulose fibres and are 100% biodegradable after approx. 1-2 years. They are intended as support in the growing phase or for 1-year-old plants.
