This is the first time I've used Mab, and I bought the 2-20mm. When I recieved it I was surprised at how heavy it is, its way heavier than anything else I've ever used and I was worried about if the roots would be able to penetrate it and grow in there. I've had a monstera growing in it for 5 days now and I can confirm... roots can grow just fine because of all the spaces and gaps that mab creates. I don't know if it's the mab, the greenspace fertiliser I'm using, or I just have a particularly vigorous plant, but I have 5 new roots growing on this cutting already, about 0.5-1cm long in 5 days! That's insane. So yeah, very happy with the results so far and I can't wait to see future results. 🙂👍💯🌱
As soon as I found out about MAB I was quick smart in buying and now I won’t use anything else for my plants. From aroids to jewel orchids all thrive in MAB, but gotta mix with with root roids then plants went crazy 👌🏻
My favourite text message from my husband is after my MAB is delivered. “Honey, your rocks are here”. I sit at my desk thinking about all the babies I’m going to report, to save from the brink. So far I’ve had a watermelon peperomia give me new shoots, PLUS I successfully rooted a cutting in MAB, I’ve saved a peperomia obtusifolia from root rot, I’ve used MAB with a jewel orchard that was looking a little sorry for itself and it’s rewarded me with a new leaf. Teamed with Root Roids and a sprinkling of Greenspace all my plant babies are loving life. Thanks, Dr Greenthumbs, you rock.
My plants (hoyas, anthuriums, monsteras and philodendrons) love MAB. LECA used to be my preferred medium, but I've had issues with my taller plants toppling over. I don't have this issue with MAB.
I love that MAB can be used hydroponically, but also as a soil substitute.
I have potted up some of my best aroids & orchids who are doing very well in mab, hopefully no more fungas nats or root rot so far so good. Keen to try out other products. I've heard & seen nothing but fantastic results by other growers, simple and easy product to use.
