Growth of bedding plants in mineral wool and mineral wool/peat moss mixes

Seedling plugs (cell-raised) of Begonia semperflorens Whiskey and Impatiens walleriana Dazzler Violet were potted on 25 Jan. in 11-cm-diameter pots containing 9 different media based on sphagnum peat, different types of mineral wool or mixtures of these materials. Two types of irrigation, drip and capillary mat, were also examined.
