Dr. Bethke has decades of experience working with a variety of growing media. When he started helping PittMoss with our scientific trials, he discovered a growing media unlike anything he had seen before. We sat down with Dr. Bethke at PittMoss HQ to cover all topics from his experiences, the history of growing media, and what makes PittMoss so unique!

Hi Wendy- Thanks for your interest in PittMoss! PittMoss Prime does not have any nutrients, so you will need to mix that with a compost or potting soil for seed germination. You can however, use PittMoss Performance as a potting mix because it has a CRF (controlled-release fertilizer). PittMoss should be refreshed every year like typical mixes, but we do have gardens that have been using the same PittMoss for 2+ years. I hope that answers your questions, thanks again!

Hello! After seeing you on Shark Tank, I anxiously awaited the ability to purchase PittMoss as a non commercial grower, and was probably one of your earlier customers as such. So now, I just wait for Winter to ebb here in MI. I’ll soon use PittMoss Performance to start my veggies indoors (I always use peat pots for undisturbed transplanting), and when the weather allows direct sowing, I plan to mix PMP into the top couple inches of my garden soils in the rows where I’ll seed. So, three questions: Do you recommend using PMP straight for my indoor seed-starting, or should I incorporate some potting soil? Will PM eventually decompose in my gardens the way newspaper does? And, do you think you’ll ever make PM seed-starting pots? Thank you for getting me excited about a wonderful sounding new product.

For Clark DeLong and Jillian Parisi, establishing their nursery, Delmarva Native Plants, was a logical next step in careers dedicated to conserving wetlands in the Eastern Shore. "The main reason behind this nursery has been to put out native plant species into the marketplace, make local provenance, locally-sourced seed a main feature of this business, and help improve environmental restoration within the Delmarva region,” said Clark.

In an EPA funded study (Contract 68D60035) newspapers and advertising materials from 48 publishers were analyzed and ALL were considered safe and well below tolerance limits. The current production of paper and the use of soya-based ink greatly reduces the possibility of contamination. Most recently the Soil amendment derived from recycled newspaper, “PittMoss”, was tested and easily passed the all the 503 limits tests.
