Roland-Story horticulture students have been learning about various medias for proper plant growth and development.

“This lesson is one that exposes the students to a wide variety of planting materials we will be using throughout the semester,” said Brad Taylor, class instructor. “Students are currently working with products such as ‘sponge packs,’ which are developed for use with the wall hydroponics system, perlite, vermiculite, peat moss, soils, jiffy tablets and rockwool.”
