Testimonials

I was previously using burlap for my micro green production. Sure to Grow enables a more efficient use of channel space and an increase of 50% to 100% of production capability per channel… STG costs more than burlap but I feel the benefits of the STG media outweigh the higher cost.

I just planted again yesterday, using coco-mat on half my systems, and STG on the other half. … MAN!!! This stuff is great! What was approximately 45 minutes of cutting and adjusting and re-cutting with cocomat, was done first shot in about 3 minutes with the roll. That is a HUGE savings on time… .

For the past few years we have been growing microgreens using Pro-Mix. We encountered a problem with damping off disease this summer and switched to the Tencel mats. They have worked wonders. Our micros grow more evenly and the mats are much easier to work with than the dirt.

BEST PRACTICES FOR GROWING WITH SURE TO GROW®

Sure to Grow® is a unique media that will give you superior results if you follow our simple instructions:

Which Sure to Grow® product should I use?

Crops Cubes Blocks Slabs Pads Rolls Loose Fill
Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Peppers
Flowers – Cut
Herbs, Baby Greens – Cut
Herbs – Live
Lettuces – Single Head
Microgreens, Sprouts, Wheatgrass
Ornamentals
Vegetable, Flower Transplants
Other – Rooted Cuttings

Propagating seeds and cuttings with Sure to Grow®

  • Completely saturate the Sure to Grow® media.
  • Place in free-draining plant trays on a level surface to prevent nutrient run-off and migration; avoid pooling of water at the root zone.
  • Deposit seeds into the pre-punched dibble holes; larger seeds and cuttings can be inserted into the cross-cut “x” in the center of the dibble hole.
  • After seeding, water the seeds or cuttings gently from the top to establish good contact with the media.
  • Cover with a humidity dome or another tray until the seed coat has cracked and the radicle has emerged.
  • Keep the media evenly moist during germination. Top watering or flood and drain are the most effective irrigation methods during the germination stage.
  • Upon germination, remove the dome and expose seedlings to full light.
  • When adjacent seedling leaves are touching, transplant to your growing system. Be sure to completely saturate the roots and cubes at the time of transplanting.

Irrigation

  • Once true leaves have emerged it is essential that a complete water-soluble nutrient formulated for the crop be supplied to the plants.
  • Compared to other media, STG® will generally require more frequent but shorter irrigation intervals.
  • Once plants are placed in the growing system, the irrigation interval must allow the media to stay evenly moist throughout.
  • In flood and drain systems, set the flood level to 1/4” to 1/2” below the top surface of the media.
  • Should the media dry out, the media needs to be completely rehydrated by flooding and draining or thoroughly watering from the top.

Crop Production

  • Vine crops and taller plants may require support in the form of staking or trellising sooner than with other types of media.
  • Cover the surface of deeper containers (Bato buckets, Dutch Pots), with a solid cover to block light, preserve moisture and prevent algae growth.

Specific Hydroponic System Instructions
