    Hey everyone we'd like to introduce Growpito Technologies LLC!

    Growpito makes an interesting grow medium product that is an alternative to rockwool and we asked if we could have some of it tested in the hands of our growers on site! We'll have a communal thread started in the next few weeks while we finalize details with the testers but wanted to introduce the company and product!

    I’m actually almost out of my current medium and my local place doesn’t carry it anymore. I’m sure I can get it but I am interested in this medium before I purchase more of anything.

    Sweet! Are you guys from the KCMO area?

    Could this medium be used in a drain to waste drip system? Is it's aeration comparable to coco or higher?

    Yes Damien, our test facility is there. Our Sim mix with all of the fibers fully charged, has an 84% air ratio. Our hydrophilic fiber matrix is unique in the industry.

    I'm definitely interested. I called today but couldn't get an answer and was wondering if I could stop by the facility as I looked in the area.

    Well I'm back from my tour of the rest facility given by @coalminer and I'm definitely impressed.

    I spent about an hour with him and the VP talking about growing and especially growing in their Sim mix. No reason to go over what they already have on their website but I'll give some first impressions.

    Facility has rows of flood and drain tables in different configurations with lights above waiting for their next grow. We got in and pretty soon we're touching this growing media and it isn't like rockwool but like hundreds of spun fibers all throughout that while dry were light and fluffy but not rigid like rockwool cubes. Touching the wet medium it was wet but even a small handful when squeezed held so much water it wasn't like the feel of soil or coco and definitely didn't leave my hands dirty.

    Some interesting things mentioned in our conversations were how much water retention the media had and how much water even one fiber could could hold. Coal miner mentioned being away for a week and only watering 25% more and returning to alive plants because the media had retained so much water. He showed me the roots of some plants that had been grow in the media and how there were so many feeder roots after one grow. He suggest flood and drain for best growth but hand watering or whatever other methods seems to be fine as well. He didn't mention specific pot sizes as a factor for growth or the amount of feeds beyond one every three days being necessary so I'm sure these will be things to play with in the future.

    This isn't like coco and doesn't need perlite or other amendments but he suggested beneficials which they offer. Also CaliMagic isn't mandatory. The last interesting thing was the ability to sow directly to the media though CM suggest a transplant. Another interesting topic was infestation and that by the nature of their Sim mix it just isn't a problem.

    What has drawn my interest is that it is reusable, high water retention, very airy and doesn't seem to compact. The root systems he showed me were expansive and being in hard sided pots they still achieved so much growth. I did receive a free sample, grateful for and thank you again, and hopefully I'll be putting it to use mid to late October.

    Once again a big thanks to @coalminer for letting me come through and providing a huge amount of information on the product. He it's passionate about this growing media and saving water.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
