Freedom Farms Formula 1 Mix

Ideal for container growing, indoor and greenhouse cultivation. Using a balanced nutrient solution is essential.

Formula 1 allows more control over the nutrient profile in the substrate than with the fortified Classic blend. The ideal fertiliser for this soil is water-soluble inorganic mineral nutrients.

This blend has no additional nutrients apart from our base amendment mixture. The performance of the Formula 1 blend depends on the application of available nutrients in the form of a balanced inorganic nutrient formulation. Application is required with the first watering and subsequent additions according to the plant’s requirement. A leaching requirement, or runoff, is necessary with every other nutrient application to avoid salt build-up. Water scheduling for this soil will require more regular watering when opting for fast growth.

Ideal watering pH for Freedom Farms Craft Soils:

Ideal pH 5.5 – 6.0

Pure coconut coir has a pH between 5.8 – 6.8. A substrate/soil pH of between 5.5 and 6.5 is ideal for plant nutrient uptake under organic and inorganic fertiliser regimes.

Freedom Farms coco coir is buffered and charged with natural amendments. The high calcium content of our amendments maintains the pH in the 6.5 - 6.8 range and will prevent a decrease in pH resulting from fertiliser application or waterings at a low pH. The soil pH is therefore buffered against decreasing pH.

On the other hand, an incremental increase in pH resulting from tap water (pH 7-8.5) use can cause the soil pH to increase above the optimal range for nutrient uptake. The soil pH is therefore not buffered against increasing pH caused by using un-pH’d tap water. Watering with a pH of 5.5-6.0 will ensure the pH of the soil remains in the optimal range of 5.5-6.5.
