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


, : Growth of bedding plants in mineral wool and mineral wool/peat moss mixes. Bulletin Pennsylvania Flower Growers ( 420): 1-6

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. All plants were watered simultaneously, as needed, and at each watering they received 200 p.p.m. N from a 20-10-20 complete fertilizer.
