Seramis Clay Granules 1 x 15 L
About this deal
If we got Christmas from the Roman Catholics, and they got it from paganism, where did the pagans get it? Where, when, and what was its real origin? Prepare nail scissors or garden pruners sterilized in alcohol, Seramis substrate, disinfectants for sections (alcohol-free preparations or activated charcoal are suitable), a plastic container larger than the previous pot, and a moisture indicator. This clay granulate consist of small, light, porous granules. The product is characterised by its high water storage capacity. The fine pores absorb the water and store it and release it again as needed. The plant takes exactly what it needs. The granulates do not compact and are structurally stable. The roots are thus optimally supplied with oxygen for strong growth.

SERAMIS® Plant Granulate is made of high quality, refined clay which replaces the usual soil substrate when re-potting your houseplants. The granules absorb a vast amount of water, holding and dispensing it when the plant needs it. The porous granules hold the water in their pores, just like a sponge. Seramis is a high-quality, pH neutral, inert growing medium for use in drip-recirculating systems and passive hydroculture.

Smith, W. Robertson (1887). "Ctesias Amd the Semiramis Legend". The English Historical Review. II (VI): 303–317. doi: 10.1093/ehr/II.VI.303. ISSN 0013-8266. At the heart of the “Seramis” soil is high-quality processed red tape clay. Before getting to the showcase, the composition goes through several stages of processing. First, the clay is selected, then dried, then cleaned by settling in water and dried again. Annealed and granulated clay is supplied to the flower department in several varieties. For orchids, two varieties of seramis are commonly used.Thus, during the fourth and fifth centuries, when the pagans of the Roman world were "accepting" the new popular "Christianity" by hundreds of thousands, carrying their old pagan customs and beliefs along with them, merely cloaking them with Christian-sounding names, the Madonna and "Mother and Child" idea also became popularized, especially at Christmas time. Every Christmas season you will hear sung and chanted dozens of times the hymn "Silent Night, Holy Night," with its familiar "Mother and Child" theme. We, who have been born in such a Babylonish world, reared and steeped in these things all our lives, have been taught to revere these things as holy and sacred. We never questioned to see where they came from—whether they came from the Bible or from pagan idolatry! Martin E Malia Russia under Western Eyes: From the Bronze Horseman to the Lenin Mausoleum.

After your grow, the medium can be re-used. Simply remove the roots and wash it thoroughly. Using an enzyme product will help to break down any remaining root-hairs. Doing this means that it can be used many times over, making it a very economical medium. For comparison, hydrogels and zeolites from hard water deteriorate after a few years, and “Seramis” with the same watering will last until the end of the plant’s life.Beringer, A. 2016.

Although eggs, larvae and mold do not survive in this formulation, this problem cannot always be avoided using rainwater. Rainwater contains micro-dust, which gradually accumulates between the soil granules, and pathogens feel quite comfortable in these intervals. Therefore, do not use rainwater when watering orchids.
