  • Organic base material is stabilized into a sponge-like block that fits perfectly in the VGM module.
  • Requires no media bag, contains no friable material that will fall out of the wall.
  • Absorbs up to five times its weight in water, but only weighs 40 lbs/pcf.
  • Facilitates even irrigation, faster grow in and optimal plant health.
