AVAFlakes H™ Differences

and Benefits


> Perfect Air / Water Ratio for Root Growth

AVAFlakes H™ structure provides a near perfect air/water ratio at all times, encouraging the development of  a mass finely branched roots - enabling better uptake of water and essential nutrients. The result is stronger, healthier plants and improved yields.

AVAFlakes H™ grown plants develop fine feeder root systems that ensure maximum nutrient uptake - unlike traditional substrates

> Scientifically Proven - Air 37% by volume

Oxygen is a vital to healthy root development as water and nutrients. The open cell structure of AVAFlakes H™ ensures good oxygen content throughout the entire depth of the slab or pot flakes, even when AVAFlakes H™ is saturated. 


Before AVAFlakes H™, with any other product, it was very easy to add water to a substrate - but far more difficult to add oxygen!

>Easy Water Management

AVAFlakes H™ is impossible to over-wet at a maximum 60% saturation. Even when the slab or flakes are saturated the structure of AVAFlakes H™ ensures there is sufficient air for healthy root growth.

  • flood and drain    

  • dripper irrigate

  • hand water

  • run to waste or recirculating systems                     


> Start With A Clean Substrate

Minimize your risk. AVAFlakes H™ is sterile and inert.  This gives your young plant the best start to life.  AVAFlakes H™ has a starting pH of between 5.5 - 7.0 so there is no need to adjust your pH - just add your nutrient solution.           

> 100% Biodegradable and Compostable - Proven in Holland

AVAFlakes H™ is an aminoplast foam. It is harmless to the environment and is 100% biodegradable and compostable, making disposal easier and maintaining the green image.

> Easy To Use in Hydroponics

Lightweight and easy to handle - non prickly.  AVAFlakes H™ is impossible to overwater. AVAFlakes H™ provides the plant with easy access to water, so in case of power failure there is a good water buffer.  AVAFlakes H™ has low cation exchange and flushes easily.


> Can't Be Beaten - Great Capillary Action

Great capillary action of AVAFlakes H™ means that the water is drawn up to the top of the slab. In uneven surface conditions where either ponding or dryness can occur. AVAFlakes H™ is still able to provide a balanced air / water ratio in both the slab and flake form.

> Scarid Fly

Grower feedback to date indications both AVAFlakes H™ and slab provide a barrier to Scarid Fly invasion. Because AVAFlakes H™ is non Fibrous Scarid Fly have difficulty penetrating the AVAFlakes H™.

AVAFlakes H™ is available in bags, prepackaged containers, or loose.

How To Use and Hot Tips

>AVAFlakes H™ is easy to use.  AVAFlakes H™ must be pre-saturated for up to 30 - 36 hours with your normal nutrient solution.  This will allow AVAFlakes H™ to reach its maximum water holding capacity of around 60%. The saturation also helps disperse the neutralizing solution.

> AVAFlakes H™ contains no nutritional elements.  As AVAFlakes H™ is supplied at a pH of 5.5 –7.0 you do not need to add pH adjusted water, just soak with normal nutrient solution.  The nutritional requirements are very similar to rockwool and perlite

> The watering regime for AVAFlakes H™ in general is very flexible due to its “can not be overwatered tag”.  AVAFlakes H™ will perform in perlite, coir, sawdust or rockwool irrigation systems.  You know when the maximum water holding capacity has been reached when you see excess water coming out the bottom, commonly called run off.

> AVAFlakes H™ should be fully saturated before the plants are placed in AVAFlakes H™.   As with all substrates there may be a tendency for water to be drawn out of the plant block or cube if the medium is not saturated.  Do not cut your plant block or cube into the slab any deeper than 10mm.  If using a small plug, make sure that the top of the plug is at least 10mm higher than the surface of AVAFlakes H™.


> AVAFlakes H™ is environmentally safe and due to the fact that it is sterile and inert, it does not contain soil borne bacteria.
