Benefits of FytoFlakes

  • You’ll enjoy stronger, richer plants

    The water-holding properties result in more robust blooms along with denser foliage.

    Because FytoFlakes create a strong, fine network of roots, you will experience a fast-growing garden with a lot of dark green leaves and big flower heads.


  • You’ll use less water

    FytoFlakes improve the absorption and water-holding ability of the soil or potting mix, meaning that you’ll use up to 50% less water, depending on conditions and plant species. When water comes into contact with FytoFlakes, it is absorbed instantly and retained within the roots.


  • FytoFlakes ALWAYS hold oxygen

    Thanks to FytoFlakes’ open-cell structure, oxygen is always available to your roots, especially in heavy clay or sandy limestone soils. When there are heavy rains or any other kind of unfavorable impact on your soil, your plants will still keep growing.


  • You’ll need less fertilizer

    Nutrients are absorbed in the open cell structure of FytoFlakes and then gradually released, reducing fertilizer leaching out. Though FytoFlakes is not a fertilizer, it has the capacity, like no other, to hold nutrient levels from the added fertilizer, especially nitrogen and potassium.


  • FytoFlakes are biodegradable and environmentally safe
    FytoFlakes break down in the soil over a 7-year plus period. FytoFlakes will not change the chemical balance of your soil (the pH).
