Baltic White Sphagnum Peat Moss.
Used as a basis of many substrates.
It is uniformly milled and screened and has consistent quality.
Baltic Peat Moss is a relatively young white peat, partially decomposed sphagnum moss (Sphagnum is a genus of approximately 380 accepted species of mosses, commonly known as “peat moss“) that can retain between 10 to 12 times its own weight in water. The peat moss is extracted from the top layer of a peat field, is lightweight and pale in colour and a coarse structure. Its acidity (pH) ranges from 3.5 to 4.0. The main characteristic of White Peat Moss is its high air and water absorption and distribution capacity. It it ideal for potting soil as the material can then be easily adjusted to each plant’s individual level.

Most popular for professional growing media is exactly white milled peat moss.
Has a fibrous consistency that improves aeration and increases drainage. It is used throughout the greenhouse trade for the production of vegetables, bedding plants, flowers and is widely used as a media base for growers who want to create their own blends
