About Ion-Exchange Substrates

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”.

Advantages of ZION ionite substrates

Tree icon
Environment friendly

Made of 100% natural material. Does not contain pesticides, herbicides, growth accelerators and phytohormones. Prevents uncontrolled leaching of minerals introduced into the soil.

Leaves icon
Intensive plant growth

The effect of increasing the growth of biomass is achieved by introducing from 2% of ZION to the soil

Soil icon
Remediation of any soil

Ionite substrate can be used both independently and as small corrective additives to any medium (depleted and degraded soils, sand and unbalanced soil of any composition)

Clock icon
Productive for up to 3 years

The material withstands several cycles of regeneration directly in the soil

Roots icon
No overdosing

Direct contact with the root system is allowed. Root burn impossible

Plant icon
Fit to any kind of plants

Greens, vegetables, fruits, berries, flowers are perfectly grown using ZION substrates
