Before starting to talk about these types of substrates, it is important to clarify what a substrate is and what its special characteristics are for marijuana plants. A substrate corresponds to the means by which plants can grow, in this case the marijuana plant.
A very important piece of information to know is that the soil or substrate for the marijuana plant has other special needs that should be paid close attention to, one of which is that it contains a mixture of peat, perlite, coconut fiber and of humus, which provides the soil with special conditions so that our marijuana plants can develop correctly with what they need.
