Grodan 3x3x2.5″ Block Improved Grow Block
New Grodan 3x3x2.5″ Block Improved! Improved product at current pricing. New density + new hydrophilic technology = better water distribution and root development. The uniform distribution of water and nutrients throughout the block allows for more efficient use of the entire substrate volume Full saturation of the blocks with no dry spots and improved EC control with less water is achieved in the rootzone due to the uniform, optimized wool resulting in a sustainable water and nutrient use. Improved “re-wettability” able to more easily increase water concentration in the substrate.
Leverage the benefits of products developed alongside plant scientists, that are specifically engineered to deliver real results for your crops. Grodan Gro-Blocks Improved with Advanced Wetting Technology — our improved stone wool substrate.
Keep it Real
Grodan partnered with the Wageningen University and Research facility in The Netherlands and top growers throughout North America to identify the optimal stone wool substrate and irrigation strategies for specialty crops.
The result of this scientific rigor is Grodan Gro-Blocks Improved with our Advanced Wetting Agent. In the scientific trials, plants grown in these Improved Gro-Blocks had faster rooting-in, higher yields, improved quality, and less water and nutrient usage throughout the entire crop cycle.
These leading-edge blocks have the optimal fiber structure and physical properties for crop uniformity, more even Water Content (WC) and Electrical Conductivity (EC) distribution throughout the entire block, and the greatest steering capabilities available. Water distribution is more uniform throughout the entire block which is the basis for a well-defined root system with higher capacities for water and nutrient uptake to produce robust and vigorous crops.
1. Saturate Grodan Gro-Blocks in a nutrient solution of roughly 1.5 EC and 5.5 pH with a course spray or submerged in the solution for up to 2 minutes. Do not over saturate the blocks or leave soaking for extended periods of time
2. Measure wet weight
Measure the weight of the block at saturation. Compare this weight to the weight of the blocks throughout the growing cycle. When the WC of the block is 55% to 65% apply the first irrigation.
Insert the well rooted Grodan Starter Plug into the hole of the saturated Gro-Block
