LITE-STRIPS Bio5 PLA
The water storage for plants close to the roots
LITE-STRIPS Bio5 are 100% biodegradable/compostable, 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 Bio5 store up to 10 l of plant-available water.
- 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 absorb water from the surface to the roots, make dense soil more permeable and function as a substrate improver.
The LITE-STRIPS Bio5 consist of 30 % cellulose + 70 % PLA and are 100 % biodegraded/composted after approx. 5-10 years. They are used in a wide range of applications.
