Working towards sustainable, natural cultivations, MondoRose e Fiori has tackled the problem of bettering the quality of the growth of plants in pots by adopting a series of fundamental changes in the choice of substratum. Peat is being replaced more and more today with renewable organic matter like coconut fibre and volcanic lapilli with the addition of Worm Humus.
This is an important change in trend, which is supported by an important EEC regulation that states, and justly so, that before 2025 the use of peat in soil must be completely eliminated: Peat, in fact, is not renewable since the natural environment from which it is taken is destroyed during the extraction (Neal 1991).
Worm humus obtained by decomposition is an organic improver rich in nutritional matter immediately ready for use. It is called “Black gold” because of its positive effects on plant growth and soil fertility. With regards to fungus and bacteria, worm humus works indirectly to contrast them by increasing the microflora in the soil, and by systematically stimulating of the plants.
