These mixes are composed of 65 to 75 percent by volume of Canadian sphagnum peat moss for water retention, 35 to 25 percent of sterile perlite or vermiculite for aeration and drainage, macro- and micronutrients to support early seedling growth, dolomitic and calcitic limestone as pH adjusters to counteract the acidity of the peat moss, and a wetting agent that assists the peat moss to absorb water.
