House & Garden’s Bat Special is a premium quality soil mix, formulated by an expert team. All ingredients have been chosen with the aim of optimising plant growth including: German black and Baltic white peat, perlite, lime, and bat guano.
The majority of Bat Special is formed from the decomposed German Black and Baltic White peat, both carrying the RHP stamp. German Black Peat is very fine, whereas Baltic White tends to be bigger and spongy. Both combined create the perfect texture and balance, giving excellent aeration for the roots.
The added perlite allows water to drain more freely, and in doing so also increases oxygenation in the medium. This lowers the chances of getting root diseases, giving all-round healthier plants.
Lime has been added to help stabilise pH levels and last but not least, the inclusion of bat guano provides extra fertiliser to your plants, helping to give optimal plant nutrition. As a manure, Bat guano contains high amounts of nitrogen, phosphate and potassium: nutrients highly essential for plant growth! Macro and micro nutrients are released as it slowly breaks down.
Bat Special also includes additional fertiliser in the mix, with an initial NPK ratio of 14-16-18 taking the EC to a level between 1.2-1.5. It is best used when re-potting for the later stages, due to the high concentration of nutrients.
Free of weeds, pathogens and pests, you can immediately get to work with the knowledge that you won’t be introducing unwanted creatures and problems into your grow room.
