Sphagnum Peat Moss

CRS Hydroponics Enterprises


Sphagnum peat is an excellent soil amendment, especially in sandy soils, which will retain more water after sphagnum peat application. Sphagnum peat is generally acid (i.e., low pH) and can help gardeners grow plants that require a more acidic soil.

Sphagnum peat is harvested from bogs in Canada and the northern United States. The bags can be revegetated after harvest in this moist environment. However, the harvest rate greatly exceeds the vegetation rate of the peat bogs, so it is considered a semi-renewal resource.

Soil Gardening lovers would find this material quite familiar as an excellent moisturizing nutrient retaining, and organic soil-softening durable material. But Peat moss also makes a good use in Hydroponics whether alone, or in conjunction with other material.

 

People can blend peat moss with perlite, vermiculite, or Styrofoam particles to add aeration and adjust the PH of this medium.
