Re-use GRODAN in planters

Repurpose your used GRODAN stone wool into a new potting medium. Just tear the old stone wool into pieces and put it inside any planter on your patio, in your house or anywhere in your garden. For an easy instant plant bed in your garden, consider filling a large cloth pot such as those made by Smart Pot® and make an instant plant bed with previously used GRODAN stone wool and a large Smart Pot.

  1. Purchase a large Smart Pot. Here we use a 4 ft. diameter pot that is 2 ft. in height.
  2. Purchase healthy plants at your local garden center or better yet, grow your own in GRODAN stone wool. Plants growing in any type of medium transplant well into previously used GRODAN stone wool.

  1. Collect used GRODAN and tear it into small pieces. Then, wet it thoroughly if dry. Fill the cloth pot until it is a couple of inches from the rim.
  2. Transplant your plants into the old GRODAN. You can add mulch on top of the GRODAN to retain moisture. Occasionally add fertilizer. Hand water the plants at least once per week, maybe more depending on the maturity of the plants and your climate. To save time watering, consider setting up a timed soaker hose.
