HydraFiber EZ Blend Bales

ez blend bale

HydraFiber® EZ Blend doesn’t require any additional specialized equipment to process, so it’s ideal for operations that utilize pad mixing or bucket blending. Greenhouse growers use it as a consistent alternative to raw materials like peat, perlite, and coir. EZ Blend is more efficient to store than other materials and contributes to better, stronger root development.

  • 4.4:1 bale expansion rate requires a front-end loader or shovel to separate materials prior to blending
  • Mixes easily with other media substrates; the HydraFiber experts will guide you on how much nitrogen (N) to add for best results
  • OMRI Listed for Organic Use
  • For optimum wettability, we recommend that a surfactant be added to EZ Blend at time of blending. Guidelines are available on request.
  • Available in 40-lb bales
