Plantofix® works in a similar way to known ion exchange systems.
It takes up substances dissolved in water and by exchange, releases the mineral substances (fertilisers) contained within it. At the same time, through its fine pores, it provides a living environment for aerobic and anaerobic bacteria which ensures that the products for decomposition are replaced and re-released as fertilising substances.
Platofix® developes its full performance capacity after only a few weeks, without encouraging the growth of algae.
The plant fertiliser stores excess nutrients in water and releases them as required to the plant roots by bacterial means.
