ZION ionite substrate is a natural sustainable complex supplement containing a full set of nutrients required for efficient plant growth. With ZION ionite substrate the nutrition is provided “upon request” for the plant. ZION based on ion exchange principle enriches the soil only with those nutrients which the plant needs at each growth phase of its life cycle (e.g. green biomass development, blossom, fruiting, etc.). ZION ionite substrates can be used as a supplement to any soils (depleted and degraded soils, sands, perlite, vermiculite, unbalanced soil of any composition, etc.) to make them extra fertile.
Historically ionite substrates were developed for application in space shuttles, submarines,
shelters, arctic stations, etc as artificial soil for plants cultivation.
ZION was developed jointly with the Institute of Physical and Organic Chemistry of the National
Academy of Sciences of Belarus based on ionitoponics principles.

No Root Burn
Improves Soil Fertility
Ionite substrates are not fertilizers. They look like a highly concentrated composition of nutrients immobilized on insoluble matrix where the ratio of nutrients preliminary optimized to fit particular plants needs.
