Hi everyone,

I wanted to know what type of media is in the picture. I'm not sure whether it is rockwool or a different one.

I appreciate the help.

Here is another picture. Thank you

RE: Kind of media

I don't think its rockwool. looks more like a compressed peat starter.
What website did you get the pictures from?

RE: Kind of media

I was thinking peat, too. I'm not sure what the white stuff is. Maybe it's some sort of treatment they give the plugs to deter algae.

RE: Kind of media

The is the link for the first picture ( ), while this is the link to the company's website where they show a video at the bottom of page of their production process ( ). The second picture I got after searching 'japan plant factory' on Google and looking at the images tab.

Thanks in advance for taking time to answer my question.
