Why Starting Seeds with SucSeed® Seed Starter Works.
SucSeed® Seed Starter is not your ordinary peat-based seed starter. Because SucSeed® is made from the Wisconsin-grown sphagnum moss long fiber plant, it is free of dirt and decomposed peat, which can contain or attract harmful bacteria that could devastate your seedlings. The sphagnum moss plant is uniquely adapted as a seed starter because of its two important attributes. First it holds and retains 20 times its weight in water. This is important because in order for seeds to properly germinate, they need a moist environment that should never dry out. SucSeed® retains water for an exceptionally long time, longer than any other seed starter. That means your seeds have a better chance of germinating, even if you miss a few watering.
The second unique SucSeed® Seed Starter benefit for seed starting is its natural anti-bacterial property that protects tender seedlings from deadly pathogens. Many studies have been conducted on why the undercomposed sphagnum moss fiber retards pathogens. The most likely research suggests that sphagnum starves pathogen’s need for its nitrogen-based food.
