The Chanvra Grow Mat for Microgreens, Mulch, & More
OUR HEMP GROW MATS
THE IDEAL MICROGREEN MATS
Our 1000 GSM grow mat is almost twice the density of the current market standard. This unique mat is designed to hold and evenly release the optimal amount of moisture for your plants. Our mats minimize maintenance and watering times, while maximizing yields and encouraging growth up to the Baby Greens stage and beyond. Our unique grow mat formula was developed with large scale commercial growers in mind, though the product will work equally as well for small home growers. Interested in purchasing wholesale?

Benefits of our Grow Mats for Microgreens, Mulching, & More
Completely Natural; No Additives Required: 100% hemp and nothing else! Hemp is naturally PH neutral and perfectly suited as a horticultural medium in its unprocessed state. While other natural fibers require treatments and additives before you can use them for growing, our process requires nothing more than simply spinning the raw hemp fibers into an easy to use hemp mat. Some growers even prefer to use the un-spun hemp fibers as a maneuverable growing medium, and this works too! Contact us for details.
High Absorption, Reduced Watering Times: Hemp is renowned for its absorbing qualities. Hemp fibers in particular have both absorbing and moisture repelling properties, meaning that the mats will slowly absorb and slowly release moisture for your plants.
Higher Yields: Grow mats are easier to work with, both in the tray preparation stage as well as the harvest. Aside from the decreased mess- compared to soil and peat- having a clean mat to work with has many benefits. In particular, you will notice increased yields, and an ability to cleanly access more of your crop.
Fully Compostable: Not only do our mats break down much faster than other growing mediums, but they also add a valuable source of carbon to your compost pile!
Ecologically Renewable: Are other growing mediums such as peat moss and soil really cheaper than hemp? Peat bogs are a valuable ecological environment, and once the peat is harvested, they are gone. Even soil- though renewable- is a rapidly vanishing resoure. Agricultural topsoil across the world is eroding at much faster rates than it can be replenished. With hemp growing medium, our purchases support ecological and cultural regeneration, and the more hemp production facilities that come online, the cheaper the raw materials can become. Eventually, there is no reason hemp should not be as cheap as commodities like soil and peat moss, but we have to start somewhere

While regular hydroponic systems utilize our hemp growing mats, more innovative, deep systems may call for raw hemp fiber as a growing medium. For these systems, we recommend a custom cut hemp mat placed over a plug of raw hemp fiber.
