Begonia Elatior hybrids potted in TS 4 PLUS medium + 20% GreenFibre® (Rec. 616) (The Netherlands)

Practical findings:

  • Very positive results with sensitive varieties
  • Increased drainage – easier water management
  • Substrate surface remains drier, less problems with liverwort algae and sciarid flies
  • Reduced occurrence of root diseases
  • With a normal nitrogen-based liquid feeding scheme in line with common practice, no special feeding is required

A trial with Begonia Elatior hybrids in ebb and flow irrigation confirmed the high suitability of GreenFibre® in peat-based substrates in comparison with coco fibres and a common standard substrate with 25 vol-% perlite. (Trial at research station LVG Ahlem, Germany)

Performance of GreenFibre® in the trial setup:

  • Plants cultivated in the substrate GreenFibre® showed superior root development
  • The better root development resulted in a higher fresh weight and a more homogeneous crop
  • Liquid-feeding was carried out in line with common practice, no fixation of nitrogen occurred during cultivation
