Application of artificial substrates for pot-plants and azalea

Acta Horticulturae (37): 1966-1974

Application of artificial substrates for pot-plants and azalea

Seedlings of Anthurium scherzerianum sown in a 1:1 mixture of perlite (size grade K111) and white peat grew better than in 1:1 mixtures of perlite and Finnpeat (Finnish sphagnum peat) or perlite and pine needle litter. For young plants optimum growth was obtained in 3:1 or 2:1 white peat and perlite.
