The Rocket Foam structure provides a near-perfect air-to-water ratio at all times


A hydroponic substrate that outperforms its predecessors

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 good oxygen content throughout the entire depth of the slab or pot of flakes – even when Rocket Foam is saturated. Rocket Foam makes it easy to add water – 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

The 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 trouble-free.

  • hand water • run to waste or recirculating systems
100% Compostable

Rocket Foam is an organic foam. It is harmless to the environment, 100% biodegradable, and compostable, making disposal easier and maintaining the green image.

Sciarid Fly

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.

How Does Rocket Foam Work?

A Look Into This New Cutting-Edge Technology

The Unparalleled Features of Rocket Foam: What Makes It a One-of-a-Kind Solution for Maximum Crop Yield

Only 2% Solid for Maximum Water and Nutrients Uptake

The Rocket Foam material is only 2% solid, while the remaining 98% is made of cavities. This ratio offers plants the perfect growing environment and promotes the growth of capillary roots – which, in turn, are vital to boost the uptake of water and nutrients throughout the life cycle of the plant.

Perfect Air-Water Ratio for Greater Root Development and Stronger Plants

Over 35% of the Rocket Foam substrate is made by air – something that cannot be compared with any other substrate on the market, which usually offers a maximum of 20-25% of air. The Rocket Foam open cell structure allows for guaranteed oxygen levels throughout the root area, even after heavy watering, which is key to strong root development. 

More Accurate Distribution of Oxygen and Nutrients – Without the Risk of Oversaturation!

It isn’t a secret that plants need warmth, water, air, sunlight, and nutrients to thrive but what has been a secret is how these different factors have to be combined for maximum yield – until Rocket Foam.

With Rocket Foam, there is no worry about oversaturating plants or overwatering your crops. With the internal structure, Rocket Foam will maintain water saturation at 60% while enabling the drainage of excess water.

A Neutral pH To Create the Ideal Growing Environment

Managing the pH level has never been easy – especially when circulating crops or using the same substrate for multiple plants. With the pH-neutral Rocket Foam material, there is no wait to stabilize the pH. Stable 5.5 – 7.0 pH
