Pressed pot substrates
The Van der Knaap pressed pot is based on white peat. This type of peat has a consistent quality: it allows for a higher air content during cultivation and has good rewetting properties. To ensure the white peat stays in its compact form, we have developed a binding agent that preserves the stability of the shape. Combined with water, this binder ensures that the pressed pot remains firm.
The binder is mixed in when dry, enabling delivery in a range of packaging types. Pressed pot substrate can be supplied in bags and in bulk.
Pressed pots are widely used for the rooting of chrysanthemums, the propagation of lettuce and for other leafy vegetables.
