What is Rocket Foam?
Take Your Hydroponic Crop to the Next Level With Rocket Foam
Hydroponics is not just rewarding – it can also significantly boost the yield of a crop. But they are not free of risk. Getting the ratio between water, nutrients, and air right are not easy, and a simple mistake can be catastrophic for an entire crop.
Rocket Foam is an easy-to-handle, surefire solution to help manage hydroponic crops. With a unique structure and low solid volume(2%), Rocket Foam is impossible to overwater or oversaturate, while continuously providing plants with readily-accessible nutrients and oxygen.
Power outage? Rocket Foam acts as a water buffer and drainage system, keeping plants well-nurtured until the primary system is back up and running.
Perfect Air / Water Ratio for Root Growth
The Rocket Foam structure provides a near-perfect air/water ratio at all times, encouraging the development of a mass of finely branched roots – enabling better uptake of water and essential nutrients. The result is stronger, healthier plants and improved yields.
Scientifically Proven – Air 37% by volume
Oxygen is as vital to healthy root development as water and nutrients. The open cell structure of Rocket Foam ensures perfect oxygen content throughout the entire depth of the slab or flakes – even when Rocket Foam is saturated. Rocket Foam makes it easy to add water to a substrate – more importantly, it adds the perfect ratio of oxygen and water at all times.
Easy to Use in Hydroponics
Lightweight and easy to handle; non-prickly. Rocket Foam is impossible to overwater. Rocket Foam provides the plants with easy access to water, so in case of power failure, there is a good water buffer. Rocket Foam has low cation exchange and flushes easily.
Can’t be Beaten
Great capillary action of Rocket Foam means that water is drawn up to the top of the slab. In uneven surface conditions, where either ponding or dryness can occur, Rocket Foam is still able to provide a balanced air/water ratio in both the slab and flake form.
Easy Water Management
Rocket Foam is impossible to over-wet/saturate at a maximum of 60% saturation. Even when the slab or flakes have saturated the structure, Rocket Foam ensures there is sufficient air for healthy root growth. Should Rocket Foam dry out for any reason, re-wetting is simple and
Rocket Foam is an organic foam. It is harmless to the environment, 100% biodegradable, organic, and compostable, making disposal easier and maintaining the green image.
Grower feedback to date indicates both RocketFlake and RocketBlocks provide a barrier to sciarid fly invasion. Because Rocket Foam is non-fibrous, sciarid flies have difficulty penetrating the Rocket Foam.
Start With A Clean Substrate
Minimize risk. Rocket Foam is sterile. This gives young plants the best start to life. Rocket Foam has a starting pH of between 5.5 – 7.0 so there is no need to adjust the pH – just add a nutrient solution if desired.
