Explaining PittMoss Prime


by Ashley Mariani November 17, 2016 1 Comment

PittMoss Prime is the blend that is at the heart of all of the PittMoss products. It is made from recycled newspapers, which we break down into engineered fiber and add natural mineral ingredients. Because it does not contain a fertilizer, like PittMoss Performance, our Prime product is used to compliment your existing potting soils or compost. 

The Mystery of PittMoss Explained

PittMoss is an engineered natural fiber derived from recycled products that would end up in a landfill. These natural fibers that have been processed to optimize the ability of those fibers to hold air and water, while efficiently delivering nutrients. The internal and external pore sizes are the key to its performance. The efficient use of space with good chemistry and biology makes PittMoss a superior soil amendment.
