Kekkilä C-1 is a high quality peat substrate for plant progagation. It is screened to a fine grade, limed and fertilised, as a ready to use growing media. The raw material is homogenous white Sphagnum peat that contains naturally occuring biological active agents. They help plants to suppress diseases and stimlated healthy growth.

Instructions for use: The bales should be loosened carefully adding 15 - 20 litres of water per XL-bale and 350 - 500 litres of water per Maxi Bale during the loosening process.

The addition of water aids the formation of peat granules and is necessary for obtaining the optimal outvolume of the substrate.
