Ionite substrate ZION was developed jointly with the Institute of Physical and Organic Chemistry of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus based on ionitoponics principles.
Ion exchange soil is an innovative nutrient medium for growing plants containing the whole list of substances needed for efficient plants growth. These substances are associated with either natural ion-exchangers or synthetic carriers, called ionites.
Ionite substrates are not fertilizers. They work on completely different principles. Substrates look like a highly concentrated composition of nutrients immobilized on insoluble matrix where the ratio of nutrients preliminary optimized to fit particular plants needs. Unlike fertilizers, plants can perfectly grow on a 100% ion-exchange substrate without the risk of “root burn”.
