WONDER SOIL® is a light weight soilless growing medium made from PREMIUM COCO COIR with guaranteed low salts. It promotes a stronger root system, faster germination and enhanced plant growth. Our products are made in various sizes and formulas for different gardening applications and expand up to 7 times their volume when water is added.
Growing any crop requires juggling light, water and nutrients. We have examined lighting and irrigation so let’s look at the third variable, nutrients. Microgreens are unique because the seeds themselves provide the initial kick of nutrients, but growth can be enhanced with additional nutrient sources in the “soil”.
It was with this in mind that we tested multiple types of growing media. We have tried using hydroponic mats, fiber mats, coco coir, potting soil, sterile mats, cloth mats, and baby blankets. It is our mission to grow organic seeds in media that was also organic.
Several years ago we were introduced to Wonder Soil, compressed coir made in Las Vegas, USA. We had great success using the media, so we asked if a specialized mix could be made that was tailored to microgreens. What we came up with was a mix of worm castings and kelp, natural sources of organic nutrients that are both sustainable and potent.
