What are the different needs in the earth that we use to grow?

The earth is a natural growing support composed of vegetable earth enriched of decomposition products (manure and decomposed vegetable debris). The earth has to have an air and water porosity allowing, at the same time, the anchoring of argans that absorb plants and the contact with the necessary solutions t their growths (fertilisers). It has to permit a good drainage, what is rarely the case with commercial composts.

What's the difference between the Light-mix and the All-mix?

The main difference between the all-mix and the Light-mix is its richness in elements. The Light-mix is a substrate that needs complete liquid fertilisers for a good plant development because of its lack of organic matter. The All-mix is a substrate full of diverse elements, suitable for the bloom. Composed of peat moss, garden peat, worm fertiliser, perlite and premix ( active bacteria mix). The difference between these two substrates is the organic element content but the choice between both of them depends on the horticulturists' growing methods. If he wants to entirely control the fertilisation cycle, he will have to work rather with Light-mix but with All-mix if he prefers reasoned fertilisation.

Which kind of earth do we have to adopt for germination?

The germination earth is an ideal substrate to sprout seeds and also to take root the cuttings. This earth is characterised because it is decontaminated, without any pathogen. It does not contain fertiliser and its pH is stabilised.

What does a supply of earthworm humus bring?

The strong bacterial content of earthworm humus (lombricompost) favours the humidification process in the soil (clay-humic complex formation), giving back all the physical quality to the soil: The physical structure of the soil, the rooting, the aerobic bacteria airing or the hydric retention. The lombricompost helps the soil to fix the main nutritive elements and to gradually give them out to the plants (low-mineralisation proctuct). Its action persists because it gets mineralised gradually according to the food needs of the vegetables (as opposed to boost fertlisers)
